WESTMORELAND COUNTY FLAG. 



This flag, yet in existence, is made of heavy crimson watered silk. 
In right upper corner the cross of St. George. In center a rattle- 
snake coiled , with head erect in the attitude of striking ; underneath 
on a scroll the words "Don't Tread on Me;" above, the letters 
" J. P." over thos.^ of " I. B. W. C. P." These stand for John 
Proctor, First Battalion Westmoreland county Provincials. 



FLAG OF HANOVER ASSOCIATORS. 



A description of this flag is given in a letter of Col. Timothy 
Green, commanding the Hanover battalion. It was of crimson 
watered silk, six feet long by five and one-half feet wide. It con- 
tained a figure in the garb of a frontier rifleman, with gun ready, 
underneath being the motto " Liberty or Death." 



STANDARD OF PHILADELPHIA LIGHT HORSE. 



The standard of the Light Horse of Philadelphia of bright yel- 
low silk, is forty inches long and thirty-four inches broad. Its can- 
ton is twelve and one-half inches long and nine and one-half inches 
wide, and is of thirteen blue and silver stripes alternating. In the 
centre a shield of blue with scrolled edging of gold. The crest is 
a horse's head, bay, with a white star on the forehead. Over the 
head of the charger is the monogram " L. H." (Light Horse). The 
supporters are to the right an American Indian, to the left an angel 
blowing a golden trumpet. Underneath on a scroll the motto, 
" For these we strive." This standard was engraved for the His- 
tory of the City Troop published in 1874, its centennial.

[It is doubtful if these persons were all non-assoeiators. It is 
more than probable the lists are those of assessment for the town- 
townships named, although the papers are endorsed "Return of 
Non-Associators." By referring to the rolls of associators for that 
year [1779], many names will be there found which appear on these 
rolls.]

Resolves were passed unaimously : 

1st. That any twelve or more of the said Committee, meeting 
upon due notice, be empowered to enter into and transact all such 
business as shall come under their consideration, provided that the 
majority agreeing shall not be less than twelve. 

2d. That the present unhappy situation of the public affairs in 
general, and of this Province in particular, render it highly necessary 
a Provincial Congress should be held as soon as possible, for which 
twelve persons shall be appointed out of the said Committee, as 
Delegates to attend the said Convention, at such time and place as 
shall be generally agreed on, 

The Committeee then adjourned till Monday, the 9th of January,

IN COMMITTEE, March 20, 1775. 

Pursuant to adjournment and public notice given, the Committee

On motion, Ordered, That Mr. Hockley, Mr. Johnston, Mr. Gro- 
now, Mr. Lloyd, Mr. Frazer, Mr. Moore and Mr. Taylor, be and 
they are hereby appointed a Committee to essay a draught of a 
Petition to present to the General Assembly of this Province, with 



AND MILITIA OF THE HE VOLUTION . 129 

regard to the manumission of Slaves ; especially relating to tlie 
freedom of infants hereafter born of black women within this Col- 
ony, and to make report of the same to this Committee at their 
next meeting. 

On motion, Ordered, That each member in this Committee will 
use his utmost diligence in collecting the several sums of money 
subscribed for the use of Boston, and pay the same into the hands 
of Anthony Wayne, Esq., Treasurer, at the next meeting of this 
Committee. 

The Committee then adjourned to meet at the house of Mr. David 
Cowpland, in the Borough of Chester, on Wednesday the 31st of 
May next. 

By order of the Committee, 

FRANCIS JOHNSTON, Secretary. 



IN COMMITTEE, May 15, 1775. 

At a meeting of the Committee for the County of Chester, at the 
Borough of Chester, May 15, 1775, Anthony Wayne, Esquire, in the 
chair, the following Resolves were made, viz: 

Whereas, The British Parliament, instead of hearing our just 
complaints or showing the least regard to the dutiful and loyal 
Petition of the late Continental Congress in behalf of America, have 
proceeded to fresh acts of tyranny and oppression, which, added to 
an Address of both Lords and Commons to His Majesty, declaring 
the inhabitants of the Province of Massachusetts Bay to be in a 
state of open rebellion, and several of the other Colonies encouragers 
of the same, have induced the soldiery under the command of Gen- 
eral Gage, at Boston, to commence a civil war, by wantonly firing 
upon and murdering a number of the inhabitants of that Province. 
And whereas, The said Address militates equally against all the in- 
habitants of the other Colonies, who have the virtue to refuse obe- 
dience to laws and measures destructive to the best rights and liber- 
ties of America, which, if suffered to take effect, must inevitably 
reduce these Colonies to a state of abject slavery, from which, in 
all probability, no human efforts would ever be able to rescue them, 
and although we will not yield to any of our fellow-subjects in point 
of duty and loyalty to our most gracious Sovereign, yet we cannot 
be so far negligent of our own happiness as totally to neglect pro- 
viding for our common safety. 

Therefore, resolved unanimously, 1st. That it is the indispensable 

duty of all freemen of this County immediately to form and enter 

into Associations for the purpose of learning the military art, and 

that they provide themselves with proper Arms and Ammunition, 

9 VOL. XIV. 



130 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

to be ready in case of emergency to defend our liberty, property and 
lives against all attempts to deprive us of them. And we solemnly 
engage to promote such Associations to the utmost of our power. 

2d. Resolved, nem. con., That no powder be expended in this 
County, except on emergent occasions, and the store and shop- 
keepers are requested not to dispose of any, except to some one or 
more of this Committee, who are ordered to purchase the same. 

3d. lies lived, 11 em. con., That this Committee, confiding in the 
wisdom and virtue of the Continental Congress now sitting in 
Philadelphia, will adopt and use their utmost endeavours to carry 
into execution, all such measures as the said Congress shall recom- 
mend for the preservation of American Liberty. 

4th. Resolved., nem. con., It is earnestly recommended to every 
subscriber in this County for the relief of the poor in Boston, that 
they immediately pay the same, as it is much wanted for the 
benevolent purposes intended. 

5th. Resolved, nem. con., That each member of this Committee 
will give his attendance at the Borough of Chester on the 31st of 
this instant, at ten o'clock A. M., in order to consult the Justices 
Grand Jury and Board of Commissioners and Assessors, on ways 
and means to procure a proper quantity of Arms and Ammunition 
for the use of this County. 

The Committee then adjourned to the time and place above men- 
tioned. 

By order of the Committee. 

FRANCIS JOHNSTON, Secretary. 



IN COMMITTEE, CHESTER, May 31, 1775. 

WHEREAS. It appears very necessary, in order to avert the evils 
and calamities which threaten our devoted Country, to embody 
ourselves and make all the military preparations in our power, and 
it appears absolutely impossible to carry this laudable design into 
execution, without observing the greatest order, harmony and con- 
cord, not only under the laws of civil Government, but also while 
under arms and on actual duty. 

We, therefore, unanimously recommend the following Associa- 
tion to be entered into by the good people of this County : 

k ' We, the subscribers, do most solemnly resolve, promise and en- 
gage, under the sacred ties of honour, virtue and love to our Country, 
that we will use our utmost endeavours to learn the military exer- 
cise, and promote harmony and unanimity in our respective Com- 
panies; that we will strictly adhere to the rules of decency during, 
duty; that we will pay a due regard to our Officers; that we will, 
when called upon, support with our utmost abilities the civil Mag- 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 131 

istrate in the execution of the laws for the good of our Country, 
and that we will at all times be in readiness to defend the lives, 
liberties and properties of ourselves and fellow-countrymen against 
all attempts to deprive us of them." 

Information being lodged with this Committee that William 
Moore, Esq., has expressed himself in terms inimical to the liber- 
ties of America, and derogatory to the Continental Congress, and 
as a special Committee is now appointed to examine into the affair, 
the public are desired to suspend their judgment until Mr. Moore 
has had an opportunity to exculpate himself from the charge, or 
make proper acknowledgment to his Country. 

By order of the Committee. 

FRANCIS JOHNSTON, Secretary. 



IN COMMITTEE, June 6, 1775. 

The Committee met pursuant to appointment in the Township 
of Charlestown, and proceeded to examine into the charges lodged 
against William Moore, Esquire, setting fortli that he was inimi- 
cal to the liberties of America, and that he had expressed a design 
to oppose the present Association. 

Mr. Moore being ill, was waited on by two of the Committee, 
with copies of the several charges exhibited against him, to which, 
after due consideration, he returned the following answer, viz: 

GENTLEMEN: I have read the different charges against me^ 
which have been laid before you, and am extremely sorry for any 
unguarded expression therein contained that may have dropped 
from me ; for, believe me, I have no interest but what is for America. 
I wish well to every individual in it, and pray that its liberties may 
be preserved to the latest times. I. also further declare that I have 
of late encouraged, and will continue to encourage learning the 
military art,, apprehending the time is not far distant when there 
may be occasion for it. 

I hope, gentlemen, this will be satisfactory to you. 

I am now an old man, and cannot possibly entertain a thought 
but what is friendly to America, in which I am to leave my family 
and all that is dear tome ; and the short time I have to live, I wish 
to seek peace with all men. 

Witness my hand this 6th of June, 1775. 

WM. MOORE. 

To Anthony Wayne, Esq., Chairman of the Committee of Ches- 
ter County. 

On motion, Resolved nem. com., That Wm. Moore, Esquire, has 
made a proper acknowledgement, and given a satisfactory answer 
to this Committee ; Therefore, 



132 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

Ordered, That this proceeding be published, to the end that Mr. 
Moore's person and property may remain free from injury on ac- 
count of anything that has heretofore been alleged against him 
respecting public matters. 

By order of the Committee. 

LEWIS GRONOW, Secretary pro tern. 



Lv COMMITTEE, June 29, 1775 

At a meeting of several officers of several companies of the Militia 
in the County of Chester, it was unanimously agreed, for the better 
regulation of the military order of said County, to have a general 
meeting of all the officers of the several companies, to be held at 
the house of Richard Cheyney, Inn-keeper, in the Township of East 
Cain, on the 21st of July, at ten o'clock A. M., which will be the day 
immediately after the Continental Fast, then and there to divide 
this County into the most proper and convenient districts, in order 
to form our several Battalions and choose our Field-Officers. 

The gentlemen officers are therefore hereby earnestly requested 
to attend for the above said purposes. 



IN COMMITTEE, September, #5, 1775. 

WHEREAS, Some persons, evidently inimical to the liberty of 
America have industriously propagated a report, " That the Military 
Associators of this County, in conjunction with the Associators in 
general, intend to overturn the Constitution, by declaring an inde- 
pendency, in the execution of which they are to be aided by this 
Committee, and the Board of Commissioners and Assessors, with 
the arms now making for this County;" and as such report could 
not originate but among the worst of men, for the worst of pur- 
poses, this Committee have therefore thought proper to declare, and 
they do hereby declare their abhorrence even of an idea so pernicious 
in its nature, as they ardently wish for nothing more than a happy 
and speedy reconciliation, on constitutional principles, with that 
State from whom they derive their origin. 

By order of the Committee. 

ANTHONY WAYNE, Chairman. 



This Committee do recommend it to the inhabitants of each 
Township within this County, to meet at their usual place or places 
for holding elections in the same, on Wednesday, the llth of Octo- 
ber instant, at two o'clock in the afternoon, in order to choose one 
or more Committee-Men to represent them in Committee for the

1st. " Such as are venders of Goods or Merchandise will not take 
advantage of the scarcity of Goods that may be occasioned by this 
Association, but will sell the same at the rates we have been re- 
spectively accustomed to do for twelve months last past, and if any 
vender of Goods or Merchandise shall sell any such Goods on higher 
terms, or shall in any manner, or by any device whatsoever, vio- 
late or depart from this agreement, no person ought, nor will any

For the more effectual carrying into execution the foregoing Re- 
solve : 

Resolved, That if it shall come to the knowledge of any Member 
of this Committee that any Retailer of Goods in this County de- 
mands or takes any higher rate for the same than allowed of by the 
Continental Congress, such Member shall require of him or her so 
offending a true copy of the original Invoices of said Goods, and 
shall lay the same before this Committee at their next meeting, in 
order that such Retailer and the Merchant from whom he purchased 
may be dealt with as the case may require.

PROCEEDINGS OF COMMITTEE. 



NEWTOAVN, January 16, 1775. 

A large majority of the Committee chosen in said County, on the 
15th of December last, in pursuance of notice for that purpose 
given, this day assembled in said town, and unanimously choose. 

JOHN HART, Esq , Chairman, and 
JOHN CHAPMAN, Clerk. 

The Committee then taking into consideration the measures re- 
commended by the Continental Congress, for the redress of Ameri- 
can Grievances, entered into the following Resolves, unanimously : 
1st. That we highly approve of the pacifick measures recom- 
mended by the Continental Congress, for the redress of American 
Grievances, and do hereby render our unfeigned thanks to the 



233 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

worthy gentlemen who composed that august assembly, for the 
faithful discharge of the trust reposed in them. 

2d. That we hold ourselves bound, in justice to ourselves, our 
prosperity, our King, and our country, strictly to observe and keep 
the Association of said Congress, especially as it is recommended to 
us by the united voice of our Representatives in Assembly, and, as 
a Committee, will use our utmost endeavors to have it carried into 
execution. 

3d. That we hold it our bounded duty, both as Christians and as 
countrymen, to contribute towards the relief and support of the 
poor inhabitants of the Town of Boston, now suffering in the gen- 
eral cause of all the Colonies ; and we do hereby recommend the 
raising of a sum of money for that purpose, to every inhabitant or 
taxable in this County, as soon as possible. 

The Committee then taking into consideration a late Resolve of 
the Committee of the City of Philadelphia, setting forth an abso- 
lute necessity that the Committees of the counties of this Province, 
or their Deputies, be requested to meet together in Provincial Con- 
vention, on the 23d day of January, instant, cannot conceive, from 
any information we have had, the necessity of such Provincial Con- 
vention, or that any good effects can be produced thereby, towards 
carrying into execution the Association so clearly pointed out to Ug 
by the Continental Congress. 

Voted, That Joseph Hart, John Wilkinson, Henry Wynkoop, 
Joseph Watson, and John Chapman, or any three of them, be a 
Committee of Correspondence, and that Henry Wynkoop be Treas- 
urer, to receive such charitable donations as may be collected, in 
pursuance with the third Resolve of this Committee. 

JOHN CHAPMAN, Clerk. 

IN COMMITTEE, May 8, 1775.' 

At a meeting of the Committee of the County of Bucks, held this 
day at the house of Richard Deedom, 

Resolved unanimously, That notwithstanding the disapprobation 
we have hitherto shown to the prosecution of any violent measures 
or opposition, arising from the hopes and expectations that the hu- 
manity, justice, and magnanimity of the British Nation would not 
fail of affording us relief ; being now convinced that all our most 
dutiful applications have hitherto been fruitless and vain ; and that 
attempts are now making to carry the oppressive Acts of Parlia- 
ment into execution by military force, we do therefore earnestly re- 
commend to the people of this County to form themselves into As- 
sociations in their respective Townships, to improve themselves in 
the military art, that they may be rendered capable of affording 
their Country that aid which its particular necessities may at any 
time require. 



AND MILITIA OF THE KEVOLUTIOX. 239 

Joseph Hart, John Kidd, Joseph Kirkbride. James Wallace, and 
Henry Wynkoop, or any three of them, are appointed as Delegates 
to meet in Provincial Convention, if any should be found neces- 
sary. 

The Committee request all persons who have taken subscriptions 
for the relief of the poor of Boston, as soon as possible to collect and 
pay the same into the hands of the Treasurer, Henry Wynkoop, 
that it may be speedily applied towards the benevolent purpose for 
which it was intended ; and at the same time, to give those who 
have not subscribed an opportunity to contribute also. 

By order of the Committee : 

HENRY WYNKOOP, Clerk pro tern. 



IN COMMITTEE, July 21, 1775. 

Complaints being made by several officers of the Associated Com- 
panies, that sundry persons from various causes had attempted to 
raise second Companies, in their townships, whereby those already 
associated were weakened, and in some instances had been greatly 
insulted. 

The Committee having considered the same, are of opinion, that 
as harmony and unanimity are essentially necessary in prosecuting 
the present unhappy contest, and as Field-Officers are now appointed 
for the respective Battalions of the County no second Companies 
ought to be raised in any Township, without leave being first ob- 
tained from them for that purpose. 

Whereas, several persons who were chosen members of this Com- 
mittee in December last, have hitherto neglected to attend the 
same, and others who have attended, have, from scruples of con- 
science, made application to be discharged, the Committee there- 
fore requests all those who do not purpose attending for the future 
to advertise their respective Townships with their determination . 
at the same time appointing some convenient time and place for 
the inhabitants to meet, and choose other suitable persons in their 
room, who are desired to meet the Committee on Monday, the 21st 
of August, at the house of John Bogart. in Buckingham Township. 

By order of the Committee : 

HENRY WYNKOOP, Clerk. 



IN COMMITTEE, August 4, 1775. 

WHEREAS, The Committee of Safety appointed by the Assembly 
of Pennsylvania,have requested the Committees of the Several Coun- 
ties in this Province to make a return to them of all the Officers of 
the Military Association, in order that Commissions may be made 



240 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

out for them agreeably to a late resolve of the Continental Con- 
gress; and as the several Committees are also requested to make a 
return of the number of the Associators, and also of the Non-As- 
sociators within their respective Districts: The Special Commit- 
tees of this County do therefore request the Colonels of the several 
Batallions to furnish the Committee, at their next general meeting, 
to be held at the house of John Bogart, in the Township of Buck- 
ingham, the 21st instant, with lists of all the Officers within their 
Districts. And the several Captains are also requested to furnish 
the Committee, at the same time, with exact lists of Associators 
and Non-Associators within their respective Townshi ; 
Signed by order of the Committee : 

JOSEPH HART, Chairman. 

N. B. All concerned are desired to attend precisely at ten o'clock. 

August 4, 1775. 

WHEREAS, I have spoken injuriously of the distressed people of 
the Town of Boston, and disrespectfully of the measures prosecuting 
for the redress of American grievances: I do hereby declare that I 
am heartily sorry for what I have done, voluntarily renouncing my 
former principles, and promise, for the future, to render my con- 
duct unexceptionably to my countrymen, by strictly adhering to 
the measures of the Congress. 

THOMAS MEREDITH. 



IN COMMITTEE, September 11, 1775. 

Thomas Smith, appeared before the Committee, voluntarily, exe- 
cuted the following acknowledgement and declaration, viz : 

" As I have been charged before the Committee for having uttered 
expressions derogatory to the Continental Congress, invidious to a 
particular denomination of Christians, and tending to impede the 
opposition of my countrymen to Ministerial oppression, I do hereby 
declare myself heartily sorry for my imprudent expressions, and do 
sincerely promise for the future to coincide with every measure 
prosecuted for the redress of American grievances, so far as is con- 
sistent with the religious principles of the society to which I be- 
long." 

THOMAS SMITH. 

Voted, that this be considered as a sufficient satisfaction for his 
misconduct. 

The Members of the Committee are desired to be particular in 
their attendance at the house of John Bogart, the 9th of October, 
at ten o'clock in the morning. 

By order of the Committee : 

HENRY WYNKOOP, Clerk of Committee. 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 241 

IN COMMITTEE, December 26, 1775. 

This Committee, desirous as much as possible to prevent every 
species of imposition and extortion, which designing persons, 
prompted by a sordid attachment to self-interest, and the present 
scarcity of sundry articles of goods, may be tempted to commit, 
have directed the republication of the Ninth Article of the Conti- 
nental Association ; and all shop-keepers, and other retailers of 
goods, are requested to be particularly attentive thereto, as a wilful 
violation thereof will necessarily incur the penalties recommended 
in this and the Eleventh article of said Association. 

Ninth Article. "Such as are venders of goods or merchandise, 
will not take advantage of the scarcity of goods that may be occa- 
sioned by this Association, but will sell the same at the rates we 
have been respectively accustomed to do for twelve months last 
past. And if any vender of goods or merchandise shall sell any 
such goods on higher terms, or shall, in any manner, or by any 
device whatsoever, violate or depart from this agreement, no person 
ought, nor will any 6f us deal with any such person, or his or her 
factor or agent, at any time thereafter, for any commodity whatso- 
ever." 

By order of the Committee : 

HENRY WYNKOOP, Clerk. 



IN COMMITTEE, January 21, 1776. 

The Committee of Safety of this Province have lately published 
a process for making Saltpetre, with a view to induce the inhabi- 
tants of this Colony to set about the work ; but. as no description, 
however exact, can so fully answer the purpose of instruction as 
an actual exhibition of the process, this Committee, at the request 
of the Committee of Safety, hath appointed James Wallace, Andrew 
Kichlein, and Joseph Fenton, Jan., to attend the Saltpetre Works 
in Philadelphia, so as to obtain a competent knowledge of the 
method practiced at the Saltpetre Works there, that they may be 
qualified to exhibit the process to such persons as are desirous of 
being useful to their country, by entering into the manufacture of 
that useful and necessary commodity; and James Wallace, is, also, 
appointed to receive all the Saltpetre that shall be made in this 
county, who will be furnished with Powder, to pay, in that article, 
one-fourth part the value of the Saltpetre, and the rest of the price 
will be punctually paid in cash by Mr. Wallace.

IN COMMITTEE, February 27, 1776. 

The following petition was directed to be sent to the General 
Assembly, viz: 

To the Honourable the Representatives of the Freemen of the Province 
of Pennsylvania in General Assembly met: 

The Petition of the Committee of Inspection for the County of 
Bucks, humbly sheweth : 

That, as a general uneasiness prevails among the Associators in 
this County, on account of the late Military Resolutions of this 
honourable House, and many persons have signed them under a full 
persuasion that amendments would be made therein ; and as there 
are many able bodied men, between the age of fifty and sixty years, 
possessed of large estates, who are entirely exempt from military 
duty and experience, your petitioners, therefore, humbly pray that 
the Association may be extended to the age of sixty. 

And as the tax upon the non-Associators is considered an equiv- 
alent for personal services, and the Associators have no compensa- 
tion for their arms and accoutrements, not to mention the dangers 
they will be exposed to when called into actual service, your peti- 
tioners pray that an additional tax be laid upon the estates of non- 
Associators proportionate to the expenses of the Associators, 
necessarily incurred for the general defence of property. 

And, as, by marching whole battalions, or companies of Militia, 
large tracts of country will be left destitute of men, except those 
who either hold all resistance unlawful, or such as are disaffected 
to the present measures, your petitioners, therefore, beg leave to 
submit it to the consideration of the House, whether it would not 
be better to direct the Colonels to draft from their battalions such 
number as shall, from time to time, be requisite, thereby affording 
an opportunity for those whose circumstances will not always admit 
their going, to get volunteers in their stead, and, at the same time, 
leaving sufficient force in every part of the country to quell any 
local insurrections. 

All which your petitioners humbly pray may be taken into the 
consideration of the House, and such amendments made as you, in 
your wisdom, shall see meet. 

Per order of the Committee : 

JOSEPH HART, Chairman. 



IN COMMITTEE, May 22, 1776. 

Resolved, That the inhabitants of those Townships in this County 
who have not already elected persons to take up the Arms of Non- 
Associators, agreeably to the late resolve of the Assembly of this 
Province, be requested to meet on Saturday, the 8th of June next, 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 243 

and choose three persons for that purpose ; and that the members 
of this Board who inhabit in such Townships will advertise this re- 
solve at some of the most publick places in their Townships, with 
the hour and place of meeting ; and it is recommended that the 
persons who shall be so chosen, together with those chosen already, 
join in their Districts, to execute the said resolve of Assembly, in 
the following order, viz; Bristol, Falls, Middletown, Newtown, 
Lower-Makefield, Upper-Makefleld, Milford, Haycock, Richland, 
Bensalem, Southampton, Northampton, Wrightstown, Bucking- 
ham, Solesbury, New-Britain, Rockhill, Hilltown, Warminster, 
Warwick, VVarrington, Plumstead, Bedrnintter, Tinicum, Spring- 
field, Nockamixon, Durham. 
By order of the Committee : 

JOSEPH HAUT, Chairman. 



IN COMMITTEE, June 10, 1776. < 

GENTLEMEN : Your favor of the 21st of May was duly delivered 
to us by Messrs. Jones and Watkins, in which you were pleased to 
recommend to us to choose a certain number out of our Committee 
to meet Deputies from the other County Committees of this Prov- 
ince on the 18th instant, in Provincial Conference, to agree upon 
and direct the mode for electing member for a Provincial Conven- 
tion. But as the matters involved in the said recommendation 
were of so great consequence to the well being of this Province, 
they thought it prudent to adjourn the 'determination of it to this 
day, when they again met, and chose Joseph Hart, John Kidd, 
James Wallace, Benjamin Seigle, and Henry Wynkoop, or any 
three of them, to represent this County at the aforesaid meeting. 
And we heartily wish that happiness and glory may attend it. 
By order of the Committee : 

I am, gentlemen, your very humble servant, 

JOSEPH HART, Chairman. 



IN COMMITTEE, July 10, 1776. 

Resolved, That this Committee will use their utmost endeavours 
that the Resolve of the late Provincial Conference for imbodying 
four hundred of the Associators of this County, be immediately put 
into execution ; and that the following gentlemen be appointed Of- 
ficers, being the proportion allotted to this County, viz : Colonel, 
Joseph Hart; Captains, John Follwell, William Roberts, William 
Hart, Valentine Up, John Jamison ; First Lieutenants, John 
Kraesen, Henry Darrah, Hugh Long, Philip Trumbower, Dennis 
Middleswart; Second Lieutenants, Abraham Dubois, James Shaw,

snck, William Himes, Joseph Hart, Stoffel Keller, John McCam- 
mon ; Adjutant, John Johnson; Surgeon, Joseph Fenton, Jr.,; 
Quartermaster, Alexander Benstead. 

Resolved, That where any person or persons within any Township 
of this County, shall refuse to deliver his or their Firearms to the 
Collectors of Arms, either chosen or appointed agreeably to a late 
resolve of the Assembly of this Province, the said Collectors or any 
of them, shall apply to the Colonel or in his absence the next in 
command of the Battalion to which the Associators of that Town, 
ship belong, who shall thereupon give orders to such officer and 
such number of men as he shall apprehend proper and sufficient to 
enforce the said resolve of Assembly. 

Resolved, That where it shall appear to the Collectors of Arms, 
that any person or persons have been possessed of good Firearms, 
and do not deliver them, or satisfy the Collectors where they are, 
the said Collectors, or any of them, cite such person or persons to 
appear before this Committee at their next meeting, and satisfy 
this Board how the said Arms have been disposed of. 

Agreeably to two Resolves of the Committee of Safety of this 
Province, this Committee have appointed Garrett Dungan to cause 
the Firearms collected from N"on- Associators in this County, to be 
immediately rendered fit for use. 

Matthew Bennett is appointed for the First Battalion and Jared 
Irwin for the Second, Third, and Fourth Battalions of Associators 
in this County, to seize the guns and mark the size on the breech, 
pin or lower end of the barrel.

BERKS COUNTY RESOLVES, 1774. 



At a meeting of a very respectable body of freeholders and others, 
inhabitants of the county of Berks, at Beading, the 2d of July, 
1774, Edward Biddle, Esq., in the chair. 

This assembly, taking into their very serious consideration the 
present critic il situation of American affairs, do unanimously re- 
solve as follows, viz : 

1. That the inhabitants of this county do owe, and will pay due 
allegiance to our rightful Sovereign, King George the Third. 

2. That the powers claimed, and now attempted to be put into 
execution by the British Parliament, are fundamentally wrong and 
cannot be admitted without the utter destruction of the liberties of 
America. 

3. That the Boston Port Bill is unjust and tyrannical in the ex- 
treme, and that the measures pursued against Boston are intended 
to operate equally against the rights and liberties of the other col- 
onies. 

4. That this assembly doth concur in opinion with their respec- 
tive brethren of Philadelphia, that there is an absolute necessity 
for an immediate congress of the deputies of the several colonies in 
order to deliberate upon and pursue such measures as may radically 
heal our present unhappy disturbances, and settle with precision 
the rights and liberties of America. 

5. That the inhabitants of this county, confiding in the prudence 
and ability of the deputies intended to be chosen for the general 
congress, will cheerfully submit to any measures which may be

PROCEEDINGS OF COMMITTEE. 



READING, December 5, 1774. 

Pursuant to advertisements dispersed through the County, a re- 
spectable number of the inhabitants met this day at the Court 
House, in this Town, and proceeded, by ballot, to the election of a

READING, January 16, 1775. 

The Committee of the County of Berks, having considered the 
Association of the Butchers of this Town not to kill any Sheep 
whatsoever till the first day of May next, take the liberty earnestly 
to recommend to the inhabitants of this County, not to sell any 
Sheep whatsoever to any Butcher from Philadelphia, or elsewhere r 
till the first day of May. The preserving of wool being an object 
of the greatest consequence, the Committee flatter themselves that 
the Farmers will cheerfully observe this recommendation : and as 
the Committee will meet in Reading, on Tuesday, the 14th day of 
February next, if any inhabitants have any objections to make to 
the measure hereby recommended, such inhabitants are requested 
to attend the Committee to make their objection, that the same 
may be maturely considered. 

Any person having wool, which he cannot dispose of in the coun- 
try, may bring it to the house of Mr. Mark Bird, in Reading, who 
will give fourteen Pence per pound for any quantity. 
By order of the Committee. 

JONATHAN POTTS, Secretary.

BEADING, January 20, 1776. 

At a meeting of the Standing Committee for Berks County, held 
this day, Mark Bird, Esq., in the chair. 

The Committee taking into their consideration the present state 
of the Association in this County, and being persuaded of the press- 
ing necessity of being prepared for defence, do earnestly recom- 
mend it to their brethren to sign the Articles of Association formed 
by the House of Assembly at their last meeting; this Committee 
trusting that such amendments will be made, at the next sitting of 
Assembly, as will make the Association not only more effectual, 
but more consonant to the principles of justice and equality 

And afterwards, at a meeting of the Committee, on the 30th, of 
the same month, 

Resolvr.d, unanimously, That it is the opinion of this Committee, 
that it will be highly requisite, in case the Assembly should not 
think proper to make the necessary amendments in the said Asso- 
ciation, that a Provincial Convention be held for that purpose ; and 
they do, accordingly, appoint Edward Biddle, Mark Bird, Jona- 
than Potts, Daniel Brodhead, Baltzer Gheer, Collinson Read, Es- 
quires, and Messrs. Valentine Eckert, Nicholas Lutz, Sebastian 
Levan, and Richard Tea, to attend the said Convention, in behalf 
of this County. 

By order of the Committee. 

COLLINSON READ, Secretary. 



READING, January 30, 1776. 

The Committee of Berks County being justly alarmed at the at- 
tempts of the enemies of America, in the different parts of this 
Province, to depreciate the Continental Currency, and having re- 
ceived information that Gains Dicker/son, a publick Friend, has 
been one of the instruments in propagating so fatal a measure, the 
Committee, being determined to support the said Currency, sent 
for the said Gains Dickenson, who, being brought before them, 
made the following Declaration, which was voted satisfactory : 

"WHEREAS, I, the subscriber, have unfortunately been guilty of 
endeavouring to depreciate the Continental Currency, but now 
being convinced and satisfied that such a conduct is highly unbe- 
coming the duty of an American, and tends immediately to ob- 
struct the measures calculated to preserve the liberties of this coun- 
try from the cruel and unrelenting oppressions of the British 
Court, do most sincerely acknowledge the heinousness of such of- 
fence, do beg pardon of my offended countrymen, and do also sol- 
emnly engage and promise not to be guilty of a like offence in the 
future, but to conform to such measures as shall be adjudged neces- 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 309 

sary for the preservation of the rights of America, trusting and 
confiding that nothing will be expected from me inconsistent with 
the religious principles of the Society with which I profess. And 
as a further atonement for my misconduct,! request this acknowl- 
edgment to be made publick, in hopes it may deter others from com- 
mitting the like offence. 

" Witness my hand, this thirtieth day of the first month, in the 
year of our Lord 1776. 

"GAITJS DlCKENSON." 

At the same time, one William Gilliland, who Had been some 
time in confinement by order of the Committee, was brought up 
and discharged, after subscribing the following acknowledgment of 
his misconduct: 

" Whereas, I, the subscriber, have been so very wicked and aban- 
doned as to speak at sundry times disrespectfully of the honourable 
the Continental Congress, and also have endeavoured to depreciate 
their Currency, for which detestable conduct I have, deservedly, 
been confined in the jail of this County by the Committee of said 
County, but being now fully convinced of the heniousnessand hor- 
rid tendency of such conduct, do hereby, in the fullest manner, most 
sincerely beg pardon of my justly incensed countrymen, and do 
promise hereafter never to be guilty of the like, but in all instances 
to conform to such rules and regulations as may be instituted by 
that very respectable body for the preservation of our invaluable, 
but invaded, rights and liberties; and do further request that this 
my acknowledgement may be made publick, that others may be 
deterred from following my shameful and wicked practices. 

" In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, this thirtieth 
day of January, in the year of our Lord 1776. 

" WILLIAM GILLILAND."

Committee of Correspondence to the Pennsylvania Delegates. 

READING, February 4, 1776. 

GENTLEMEN: A number of English soldiers who were lately 
taken in Canada have arrived here, with thsir wives and children. 
The Committee were immediately assembled, and, although they 
were much surprised at so large a party being ordered here without 
any previous notice, and without any person attending them to 
supply them with necessaries, yet, understanding it was the pleasure 
of Congress the said soldiers should be quartered here, they imme- 
diately appointed Mr. Henry Haller, a member of the Committee, 



310 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

to provide houses, fire- wood, and provisions for the party, who must 
have otherwise suffered much at this severe season. As we are 
totally unacquainted with the pleasure of the honourable Congress 
as to the particular quantities of provisions to be allowed these 
prisoners, we have despatched an express to you, gentlemen, desir- 
ing you will, by his return, be pleased to procure and send to us the 
directions of Congress to govern us in the matter. 

As Mr. Haller has been an active member of this Committee, and 
is a very suitable person, we beg leave to recommend him to be 
continued as Commissary for the soldiers stationed here. 

We are, gentlemen, your most obedient, humble servants. 

By order of the Committee of Correspondence : 

MARK BIRD, Chairman.

nia, in the Continental Congress at Philadelphia. 



BERKS COUNTY, May 11, 1776. 

WHEREAS, It has been proved before the Committee that I, the 
subscriber, have designedly thrown out many expressions to dis- 
courage the good people of this and the neighboring County of 
Northampton from taking up arms against Great Britain, and have 
also written several letters for that purpose : I do hereby acknowl- 
edge the truth of the said charge, and beg pardon of the publick 
for my conduct, and do promise and engage that I will support the 
present opposition, as much as in my power, against all the enemies 
of America, and for the future conduct myself in such a manner as 
shall give no offence to my neighbors concerned in the same, or in 
any wise prevent the prosecution of the measures of the honourable 
the Congress, or of any publick body acting under them. 

Witness my hand this llth of May, 1776.

HEADING, June 8, 1776. 

At a meeting of the Standing Committee of the county of Berks 
held this day, Mark Bird, Esquire, in the Chair. 

Resolved, That as some people have declared that no obedience 
ought to be paid to the civil authority, because a Government will 
shortly be founded on the authority of the people in the room of the 
present Government ; and as such a conduct will only serve to intro- 
duce confusion and disorder, and endanger the lives and properties 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 311 

of every individual in society, it is the opinion of this Committee, 
and they are determined to support the same to the utmost of their 
abilities, that the same obedience should be paid to the civil au- 
thority as used to be paid to it, till a new Constitution shall be 
formed by a Provincial Convention, and commissions shall be issued 
by virtue of the new legislative authority for the appointment of 
Courts and Magistrates, to preserve the peace and administer jus- 
tice to the people ; and then the authority of the present Courts 
and Magistrates will cease of course. 

By order of the Committee: 

COLLINSON READ, Secretary. 

READING, June I5lk 1776. 

At a meeting of the Standing Committee for Berks county, held 
this day. 

Ordered, That the following Resolve of this Committee, and the 
Acknowledgements of John Ebeling, Matthias Rhodes, Jonathan 
Rhodes, and Henry Kettner, be published in the English and Ger- 
man Papers. 

COLLINSON READ, Secretary. 

WHEREAS, The Honourable the Continental Congress have re- 
commended it to the several Assemblies, Conventions, Councils, 
and Committees of Safety of the several United Colonies, to cause 
all persons to be disarmed within their respective Colonies who aro 
notoriously disaffected to the cause of America, or who have not as- 
sociated and refuse to associate for the defence of these Colonies 
by arms against the hostile attempts of the British fleets and armies, 
and that such of the said Arms as are fit for use, or which can be 
made so, be appraised, as by the said recommendation of Congress 
is directed ; in pursuance whereof the Assembly of this Province 
have resolved that three shall be chosen by the inhabitants of every 
Township in the Province, who shall meet those chosen by the two 
adjoining Townships, to collect the arms from the disaffected per- 
sons and non-Associators aforesaid; and have further directed 
that the Committees of Inspection and Observation in each County 
shall take care that the said recommendation of Congress be effect- 
ually put in execution : And whereas some people in Berks County, 
in contempt of the said authority, have refused to deliver up their 
Arms to said collectors, and put the Committee to the disagreeable 
necessity of taking proper notice of their conduct ; this publick 
notice is given, as well to the said disaffected persons and non-Asso- 
ciators as to the said collectors in this County, that the Committee 
will afford all the assistance in their power to the said collectors in 
procuring the Arms aforesaid ; and in case of their neglect or refu- 
sal to do their duty, will take such notice of them, and sucli farther 
measures as will answer the intention of the said resolves. 



312 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

Whereas, It liath been proved before the Committee of Berks 
county, that we, the subscribers, have been guilty of spreading a 
report that the Officers of the Militia Company of Colebrookdale 
Township, in the said County, had sold their men to the Colonel of 
the Battalion to which they belonged. We do hereby acknowl- 
edge our misconduct, and beg pardon of the Officers of the said 
company for spreading the said report, and do promise for the fu- 
ture to conduct ourselves so as to give no offence to the said com- 
pany or any other of the Associators of this county. 
Witness our hands : 

MATTHIAS ROTH, 

JONATHAN BOTH. 
June 15, 1776. 



Whereas, I, the subscriber, have greatly abused the persons ap- 
pointed to collect the Arms of the non- Associators in the Town- 
ship of Berne, in Berks County, for which I was justly confined 
by the Committee of the said County ; I do therefore beg pardon of 
the publick for my misconduct, and promise to behave myself for 
the future so as to give no offence to the publick, or opposition to 
the measures of the Congress, Assemblies, or Committees, acting 
by their authority. 
Witness my hand : 

HENRY KETTNER. 

June 15, 1776. 



Whereas, 1, the subscriber, have declared that no person who 
hath taken the oaths of allegiance to the king ought to be permit- 
ted to hold any office in the Militia, and that Henry Christ and 
Baltzer Gheer, Esq.'s were unfit persons to be Colonels for that 
reason ; and whereas lam now convinced that if such an opinion 
should prevail it would occasion the removal of many worthy of- 
ficers who have taken the said oaths before the same were dis- 
pensed with by the honourable Congress, and promote great dis- 
turbances among the Associators: I do therefore, hereby declare 
that I look upon the said opinion as unjustifiable and wrong, and 
beg pardon of Colonel Gheer for the disturbance my declaring the 
same hath produced in his battalion ; and I do engage for the fu- 
ture not to mention the same, or any other matter which may tend 
to the disturbance of the Associators, or other persons engaged in 
the support of the publick measures necessary at this time.

The Committee proceeded to elect a Chairman and Clerk, when 
Captain John Hambright was unanimously appointed Chairman 
during the continuance of this Committee, and Thomond Ball, 
Clerk. 

A return was presented to this Committee, signed by William 
Scull, Esq., Chairman of a meeting of the officers and committee- 
men of the lower division of this county, held at Northumberland 
the 7th hist., certifying that the following gentlemen were duly 
elected field officers for the Battalion of said division, viz; 
Samuel Hunter, Esq., Colonel. 
William Cook, Esq, Lieutenant Colonel. 
Casper Weitzel, Esq., First Major. 
Mr. John Lee, Second Major. 

Sesalvcd, That we accept of the same as a true return, and that 
the gentlemen therein mentioned be recommended to the Hon. 
Assembly or Committee of Safety to be commissioned accordingly. 

Complaint being made that the battalion of the upper division of 
this County have not yet met so as to have a fair election for field 
officers. 

Resolved, That it be recommended to the officers, with three 
committeemen from each township in said division, to meet at the 
house of John Scudder, on Saturday, 24th inst., to elect their field 
officers and return them to this committee on Monday, 26th, inst., 
in order to be recommended to the Committee of Safety. 

Resolved, That the absence of several gentlemen chosen Captains 
of companies in this county (upon their several occasions) and such 
as did appear (from the short notice they have had) not being pro- 
vided with as regular returns of their officers and companies as we 
think can authorize our recommendation of said captains or their 



AND MILITIA OF THE KE VOLUTION. 339 

subalterns to the Assembly or Committee of Safety of this Province, 
to remedy this inconvenience it is recommended to the committee- 
men of each township to advertise a meeting of the several compa- 
nies on Wednesday 21st inst., at such places as the majority of the 
committeemen. shall think most convenient, where, under the in- 
spection of two or more committeemen, each company shall estab- 
lish their present, or elect other officers, as they shall think proper, 
and the captains so established or elected shall make returns of 
their subalterns and companies to this committee on Monday 26th 
inst. It. is expected that no gentleman will offer to return a com. 
pany that does not consist of forty privates with the officers and 
non-commissioned officers, agreeable to the regulations of our Hon. 
House of Assembly. 

Resolved, That if a committeeman or committeemen be elected 
officers, one or more magistrate or magistrates present may certify 
for them, and if no magistrate be present, then two or more repu- 
table men certifying for the justness of the election will be accepted 
of. 

Resolved, That it is the opinion of this Committee that a petition 
be presented to the IJon. Assembly of this province, setting forth 
the late murder of two of the sheriff's posse, near Wioming, for 
attempting to act in conformity to the laws. 

Resolved, That John Weitzel, Esq., Alexander Hunter, Esq., and 
Mr. Thomond Ball, be a committee to frame said petition and pre- 
sent it to this Committee at their next meeting. 

The Committee then adjourned to Monday 26th inst., at the 
house of Lauglin McCartney, in Northumberland Town. 



Monday, February 26, 1776. 

The Commiitee met according to adjournment at the house of 

Lauglin McCartney, in Northumberland Town Captain John

was appro vei of and ordered to be copied fair. 

The following gentlemen appeared and produced certificates of 
their being regularly chosen captains of companies in Colonel 
Hunter's battalion, and produced lists of their subalterns, compa- 
nies, &c., viz: 

[For list see page 315.] 

Resolced, That the above six companies appear to be full and 
regularly officered, and that they, with the field officers of that bat- 
talion, be recommended to the Committee of Safety to receive their 
respective commissions, which was done in a letter, of which the 
following is an abstract. 



340 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

NORTHUMBERLAND, February 26, 1776. 

GENTLEMEN, At a meeting of the Committee for this County, 
held this day, the following gentlemen were returned as duly elected 
Field Officers, Captains and Subalterns of a Battalion raised in this 
county, viz. the officers mentioned above. The above returns of 
six companies belonging to the battalion expected to be commanded 
by Samuel Hunter, Esq., appear to be well and regularly certified 
as complete companies. There are two or three companies more 
intend to belong to said battalion, but their captains be\ng at present 
out of the county, we have received no returns of them. We further 
have the pleasure to inform you there is another complete battalion 
formed in this county, intended to be under the command of Wil- 
liam Plunket, Esq., but he with his other field officers being so 
lately promoted, their companies have not had sufficient time to 
elect captains in their room, we therefore think we cannot at present 
with propriety recommend them, but hope in a few days to have 
the honor of transmitting to you a proper return of said battalion. 
In the mean time take the liberty to recommend the above named 
gentlemen to be commissioned in the several stations annexed to 

their names. 

4nd are gentlemen, with due esteem, 

Your very humble servant, 

By order of the Committee, 
JOHN HAMBRIGHT, Chairman. 
To the Committee of Safety, Philadelphia. 

Resolved, That as several companies belonging to battalions in 
this county have not yet brought in their returns, and it may be 
inconvenient to call the whole Committee together to receive their 
returns, that the Chairman, with four others of the Committee, be 
sufficient to receive sucli returns and recommend the officers to the 
Committee of Safety. 

Jiesolved, That this Committee be adjourned to Wednesday, 13th 
of March next, then to meet at the house of Frederick Stone in 
Northumberland Town. 



Widncsda;/, March 13th, 1776. 

The Committee met at the house of Frederick Stone in North- 
umberland Town agreeable to adjournment, Captain John Ham- 
bright in the Chair, when the following gentlemen made returns of 
their officers, captains, subalterns, &c., properly eertilied, viz: 

[For list see page 322.1 

Resolved, That the returns made of the above mentioned field 
officers and seven companies appear to be regular and well certified 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 341 

as full companies, and that [the] officers be recommended to the 
Committee of Safety, which [was] done by letter of which the fol- 
lowing is a copy. 

NORTHUMBERLAND, March 13th, 1776. 

GENTLEMEN, Agreeable to the promise of our last of 26th ult., 
we now inform that at a meeting of the committee for this county 
held this day, the following gentlemen were returned as fairly 
elected field officers, captains and subalterns of a, battalion raised 
in this county, viz : 

William Plunket, Esq., Colonel, and the rest as above. 

The above returns of officers for a battalion consisting of seven 
companies, appear to us to be regular and well certified to be com- 
plete companies ; we therefore take the liberty of recommending 
said gentlemen to the respectable Committee of Safety appointed 
for the Province of Pennsylvania to receive commissions in the 
several stations annexed to their names. Being unwilling to 
trouble the committee, who, we apprehend, are already over-bur- 
thened with business, we have transmitted an enumeration of 
grievances under which we think this county labours, to Samuel 
Hunter, Esq., our representative, and one of your respectable body, 
who is well acquainted with the circumstances of this county, re- 
questing he may, if necessary, lay the same before you, and should 
be glad of your opinion how to act in the different cases therein 
mentioned. 

We are, gentlemen, &c. 
Signed by order of the Committee, 

JOHN HAMBRIGHT, Chairman. 

To the Committee of Safety, Philadelphia. 



NORTHUMBERLAND, March 13, 1776. 

SIR, We have this day wrote to t'he Committee of Safety, re- 
commending officers of another battalion, to wit : Colonel Plunk- 
et's. We had it in contemplation to write to the Committee of 
Safety concerning the recruiting parties that have lately been 
amongst us and taken away some good men, when both officers and 
men could be sent from this, if any ought to be sent out of the 
county. It is unnecessary for us to inform you of our situation, 
as you are so well acquainted with it. There have been different 
applications to us for recommendations as officers of companies to 
be raised in this county, to go into immediate service ; we are 
somewhat at a loss what to do, but would be desirous, if men are to 
be taken from the continental service out of this county, officers 
should go with them. We, not considering it proper to trouble the 



342 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

Committee of safety with our sentiments on this occasion, have 
taken the liberty to write to you, with an intention to get your ad- 
vice upon the matter, as we cannot prevent recruiting parties from 
corning amongst us, or stop men from going into the army out of 
this county. It' more battalions should be raised, or more men 
wanted, would it not be proper from our situation as a frontier 
county to have two or three companies raised, officered and disci- 
plined, and put into immediate pay ; and if not wanted nearer 
home, to be always in readiness to go upon any service on which 
the continent may have occasion for them. We have sufficient in- 
formation that Hawkins Boone has enlisted several men in this 
county, and has declared his having received his authority and 
money from the Congress for that purpose, and that lie is to be a 
guard to the Congress. By this conduct he has drawn off some 
men from the different companies of military associators. We 
have as a committee of the county taken liberty to cite him to ap- 
pear before some of us and show by what authority he has under- 
taken so to do, but he has not appeared. We think when men are 
enlisted in this county, we have a right to know for what service 
they are enlisted. It is from our zeal for the good cause now carry- 
ing on that we are desirous to know the reason of such '.procedure. 
This, if you think proper, you may communicate to the Committee 
of Safety, and are requesting your advice how to act. 

With due respect, your very humble servants. 

Signed on behalf of the Committee, 

JOHN HAMBRIGHT, Chairman. 

To Samuel Hunter, Esq., Philadelphia. 



Information being given to the Committee that a certain Haw- 
kins Boone is now enlisting men in this county, without giving 
any satisfactory account for what purpose or service the said men 
are enlisted. 

Resolved, That the Chairman of this Committee call upon the 
said Hawkins Boone, by letter or otherwise, to appear before him 
and two or more of said Committee, as he, the chairman, shall 
think expedient, on such day and at such place as he shall appoint, 
to show cause why he, the said Boon, enlists men as aforesaid. 

Resolved, That this Committee be adjourned to Monday. 25th of 
March instant, then to meet at the house of Thomond Ball, in Sun- 
bury. 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 343 

Monday March 25, 1776. 

The Committee met pursuant to adjournment at the house of 
Thomond Ball, in Sunbury, Captain John Hambright in the chair. 

Resolved, That it appears to this Committee that several recruit- 
ing officers belonging to battalions of different counties in this 
Province, having lately come to this infant frontier county and 
drained it of a number of useful men, to the prejudice of the same. 

Resolved, That for the future no officer or non-commissioned of- 
ficer be allowed to recruit men in this county, except the officers 
who are or may be appointed therein. 



John Simpson, Esq., presented a return, wherein appears the 
following list of officers, the company belonging to Col. Hunter's 
battalion, viz: 

Captain, John Simpson, Esq., 

1st Lieut. Robert. Curry, 

2d Lieut. John Ewart, 

1st Ensign, Thomas Gaskins, 

2d Ensign, David Mead. 

Resolved, That the same appears a full company, and that the 
gentlemen therein mentioned as officers, be recommended to the 
Committee of Safety to receive their several commissions, which 
was done accordingly by a letter, of which the following is a 
copy. 

SUNBURY, March 26, 1776. 

GENTLEMEN Our last to you was of 13th inst., recommending 
William Plunket, Esq., Colonel, with other officers of a battalion 
commanded by said Col. At this meeting John Simpson, Esq., 
presents a return in which it appears that he is Captain, Robert 
Curry, 1st, and John Ewart, 2d Lieutenants, Thomas Gaskins, 1st 
and David Mead , 2d Ensign, which is well certified to be a full 
company belonging to Col. Hunter's battalion ; we therefore take 
the liberty of recommending said gentlemen to receive commissions 
agreeable to the ranks to which the people have appointed them. 
We are now, gentlemen, to inform you of what we think a griev- 
ance to this young and thinly inhabited county, viz, a constant 
succession of recruiting officers from different counties in this 
province. Our zeal for the cause of American liberty has hitherto 
prevented our taking any steps to hinder the raising of men for its 
service, but finding the evil increasing so fast upon us as almost to 
threaten the depopulation of the county, we cannot help appealing 
to the wisdom and justice of your Committee to know whether the 
quota of men that may be demanded from this county under their 
own officers is not as much as can reasonably be expected from it.

Whether at a time when we are uncertain of peace with the Indians 
(well knowing that our enemies are tampering with them) and a 
claim is set up to the greatest part of this province by a neighbor- 
ing colony who have their hostile abettors at our very breasts, as 
well as their emissaries amongst us, is it prudent to drain an infant 
frontier county of its strength of men ? and whether the safety of 
the interior parts of the province would not be better secured by 
adding strength to the frontiers ? Whether our Hon. Assembly, by 
disposing of commissions to gentlemen in different counties to raise 
companies which are to form the number of battalions thought 
necessary for the defence of the province, did not intend that the 
respective captains should raise their companies where they [were] 
appointed ? and not distress our county by taking from it all the 
men necessary for the business of agriculture, as well as the de- 
fence of the same? From our knowledge of the state of this 
county, we make free to give our opinion of what would be most 
for its advantage, as well as that of the province, (between which 
we hope there never will be a difference ;) and first are to inform 
you [of] the poverty of the people, many of whom came bare and 
naked here, being plundered by a banditti who call themselves 
Yankies, and those who brought some property with them from the 
necessary delay of cultivating a wilderness before they could have 
any produce to live upon, together with the necessity of still con- 
tinuing the closest application to labor and industry for their sup- 
port, renders it morally improbable that a well disciplined militia 
can be established here, as the distance which some men are obliged 
to go to muster is the loss of two days to them, which, not being 
paid for, they will not, nor indeed can they so often attend as is 
necessary to complete them even in the manual exercise. We 
would recommend that two or more companies be raised and put 
in pay for the use of the province, to be ready to march when and 
where the service may require them, and when not wanted for the 
service of the public at any particular place, to be stationed in 
this county in order to be near and defend our frontier, should they 
be attacked by our enemies of any denomination, the good effect of 
which we imagine would be considerable, as though they may be 
too few to repel, they may stop the progress of an enemy until the 
militia could be raised to assist them. Should this proposal appear 
eligible, please to inform us thereof, and we will recommend such 
gentlemen for officers as we think will be most suitable for the 
service and agreeable to the people. 

We are, gentlemen, with due respect,

AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 347 

The Committee proceeded to elect a Chairman and Clerk, when 
Mr. Robert Frute was unanimously appointed Chairman during 
the time of six months, and John Boyd, Clerk. 

1st. Resolved, That no complaint be received by this Committee 
that arises in any township and does not respect the county at large, 
except upon an appeal from the township committee, and that such 
appeal be delivered in writing, as well as all complaints that are re- 
ceived, and that all complaints be signed by the person aggrieved 
or complaining. 

2d. Resolved, That Andrew Culbertson, Mordeeai McKinney, 
and James Giles, call upon Col. Wm. Plunket for the dividend of 
ammunition belonging to the six companies of his battalion that 
lie above Muncy,and in case it is inconvenient for him to make the 
dividend, Laughlan McCartney, at whose house the ammunition is 
lodged, is hereby desired to do it arid deliver the quotas allotted 
for the aforesaid six companies to the aforesaid Andrew Culbertson, 
Mordeeai McKinney and James Giles, who are to deliver the same 
to the respective captains, and by them kept in some convenient 
dry place, ready to be delivered out when occasion requires. 

3d. Resolced, That the Committee, or any two of them belonging 
to the other three battalions of this county, call upon Laughlan 
McCartney for their equal dividend of what ammunition is in hand, 
and deliver to the respective captains in each battalion an equal 
dividend of said ammunition according to their number of men, 
and by them kept secure in some convenient dry place ready to be 
delivered out when occasion requires. 

4th. Resolved, That each colonel recommend to their respective 
captains to use all possible to have any arms thai are out of repair 
put in as good order as soon as possible. 

As this Committee is informed of a quantity of powder and lead at 
Mr. John Harris's ferry, which belongs to the associators of this 
county, we do recommend Major John Lee and Captain Charles 
Gillespy as two suitable persons for to bring up the same, and we 
do appoint Laughlan McCartney and John Boyd for to agree with 
them for the bringing up of the said ammunition. 

5th. Resolved, That this Committee be adjourned to Tuesday, 
the 10th of September next, to meet in the town of Northumber- 
land. 



Tuesday y e 10 of September, 1776. 

The Committee met according to adjournment, in the town of 
Northumberland Mr. Robert Frute in the Chair. 

Complaint being made to this Committee against Mr. Aaron 
Levy and John Bullion, setting forth that the aforesaid Levy and 



348 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

Bullion have a quantity of salt on hand which they refuse to sell 
for cash, by a former resolve of the Committee. 

Resolved, That the aforesaid salt that is in the hands of the 
aforesaid Levy and Bullion, (as they have refused the same for 
sale,) be put into the hands of Mr. Wm. Sayers, and by him sold at 
the rate of fifteen shillings per bushel, and not to sell unto any 
family above half a biishel for the time that the said salt is selling, 
and that the said Sayers shall keep a particular account of every 
bushel that he sells, and when sold, he shall return the money 
arising from said salt to this Committee, first deducting one shil- 
ling out of the Pound for his trouble for selling said salt, and six 
shillings and four pence for porterage. 

A complaint being made to this Committee against two certain 
men, namely, William Chattim and James Parker, of not behaving 
themselves as friends to our country in general, and had armed 
themselves with two pistols, therefore, it was 

Resolved, That the aforesaid Chattim and Parker should be sent 
for and examined. 

Being brought before the Committee and examined, they con- 
fessed themselves to be two of His Brittanic Majesty's soldiers, and 
both prisoners. Therefore, this Committee thought it most proper to 
convey the two aforesaid men into the care of Lancaster Committee, 
where we understand there is a number of their fellow prisoners, 
and that the aforesaid arms should be sold at public sale, and the 
money arising from the sale of said arms, should, as far as it would 
admit of, be put to discharge of such expenses as should arise for 
the trouble of said prisoners. 

And as there was a bill of expenses produced to this Committee 
by John Chattim, against the two aforesaid prisoners, and he re- 
fusing to prove the same, it was resolved, that the aforesaid bill 
shall not be accepted of by this Committee unless the aforesaid 
John Chattim do prove the same. 



September 12th, 1776. 

On examination of the two different quantities of ammunition 
heretofore forwarded to the care of the Committee of this county^ 
and on a careful examination of the number of associators in this 
county, it appears that the quota of each associator is half a pound 
of powder and one pound of lead. 

And whereas, the greater part of Col. Plunket's battalion are sit- 
uated in the frontier, and most exposed parts of this county, there- 
fore, Resolved, that the further quantity of eighty-nine pounds of 
powder and one hundred and seventy-eight pounds of lead be de- 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 349 

livered into the hands of Mr. Fleming, Mr. Jackson, Mr. Kemp- 
ling, Mr. Culbertson and Mr. Giles, and that the same be by them 
delivered among the different captains of the said battalion, with 
the strictest charge that the same be preserved for the purpose of 
the defence of this county. 

The same division to be made with a proper regard to the dif- 
ferent numbers in each company. And it is further Resolved, that 
the further quantity of eighty-six pounds and three-quarters of 
powder, and the quantity of one hundred and seventy-three pounds 
and one-half of lead be delivered to Mr. Frnit, Mr. Gray, Mr. Mc- 
Clannachan, Mr. Shaw, Mr. McCandles and Mr. Geddis, to be by 
them distributed among the Captains of Col. Potter's battalion in 
such sort that each private have one-quarter of powder and half a 
pound of lead, Captain McMillan's company excepted, who are to 
have each half a pound of powder and one pound of lead. 

And it is further Resolved that the further quantity of fifty pounds 
of powder and one hundred pounds of lead be delivered to Mr. Coal, 
Mr. TreasteivMr. Bolander, Mr. Brousiusand Mr. Reitz, by them 
to be divided among the Captains of Col. Wiser 's battalion in the 
same proportions as the former lifty weight of powder was directed 
to be divided. 

It is likewise further Resolved, that the additional quantity of 
fifty pounds of powder and one hundred weight of lead to be de- 
livered to John Maclay, Laughlan McCartney and James McClure 
to be by them divided among the Captains of Col. Hunter's battal- 
lion, in due proportion to the number of privates in their respective 
companies. 

WHEREAS, This Committee being informed by one of our mem- 
bers of convention that there is a dividend of salt in Philadelphia, 
which is allotted for this county by a late resolve of Convention, 
therefore, this Committee thought proper to appoint two suitable 
persons to go to Philadelphia and take charge of said salt, and [to] 
be by them conveyed to this county and delivered to the care of this 
Committee. Therefore, William McClay and Mordecai McKinney 
were unanimously appointed by this committee for the purpose 
above mentioned. 

Resolved That the salt belonging to this county is to be sold at 
fifteen shillings per bushel. 

A complaint being laid unto this Committee by Samuel Dale 
against Col. William Plunket, the same being read, was postponed 
until our next meeting.

Pennsylvania, met in Philadelphia, The Twelfth day of September* 
Anno Dom : 1776. 

The Memorial of the Committee of the County of Northumber- 
land, in the said State, most humbly sheweth 

That the exposed situation of the north- western Frontier of this 
County has engaged this Committee to turn a watchful eye to- 
wards every motion of the Indians in our Neighborhood ; It is with 
grief we learn That the Sentiments of the Indians in general in- 
imical, and those of them who were lately conversant among Us, 
having suddently withdrawn themselves to their towns, leaves us 
little Room to Doubt, that our next interview with them, will be 
as Enemys A strong (and as we believe) well founded Expecta- 
tion. That some Men would be raised for the Defense of this 
County, has hitherto supported in some measure the Spirits of the 
People ; disappointed as they now consider themselves, in this Ex- 
pectation, we are not able to keep the single and disengaged Men 
in the County, they consider fighting as inevitable, and choose 
rather, under pay, to have to do with a humane Enemy, than at 
their own expense to encounter merciless Savages ; the County By 
this means loses not only the most useful of our men, But the best 
of our Arms are carried out of the County, so that upon a late Re- 
view, a general Repair of the remaining Arms was found necessary. 
Strongly actuated as we are with a Just Sense of the General Ca- 
lamity, yet we cannot remain insensible of our own eminent dan- 
ger, and tho' it is with Reluctance, that we would divert your at- 
tention, from matters of greater magnitude, yet we cannot help im- 
ploring the assistance of this Convention, and that our situation 
may be taken into their serious consideration, and such Relief 
granted, as may in'some measure be adequate to our circumstances, 
either by taking men into Pay for the Protection and support of 
that part of the Frontier when the enemy may attempt to make an 
inroad, and to pursue them to their Retreats and Towns or by 
granting such sum of Money as will enable the Inhabitants to se- 
cure themselves in Forts or Places of safety, in Case of any sudden 
Invasion, and your Committee as in Duty bound will pray.

march immediately with the militia of this county into actual ser- 
vice for the defence of the United States, in order to wipe off the

but as said Ilobb hath since (as appears by sufficient testimony 
Riven before this Committee), very ungratefully abused the lenity 
shown him by said Col. Murray, by barbarously beating and much 
abusing a certain Peter Smith of this county so as to render him 
unable for a considerable time to support himself and his small 
family by his industry as usual, as appears by the testimony of said 
Smith, and other evidences produced before this Committee, and 
whereas, he did at the same time not only despise all authority of 
this Committee, but also charged them with horse-stealing, robbery 
and murder, as appears by the testimony of said evidences, There- 
fore, Resolved, Notified to take, or order to be taken the aforesaid 
Robert Robb before the Council of Safety of this State, to whom he 
hath appealed, in'order to answer the several charges proven against 
him before this Committee, which we have enclosed in a letter 
directed to the said Council of Safety, which you are desired to 
deliver with said prisoner. 
Signed by order of Committee.

tisement to attend at next meeting. 



March 11, 1777 

The Committee met according to adjournment, Mr. Thomas Jor-

Upon complaints being made by a certain Allis Read, of Wyom- 
ing Township, that he the said Read, had a horse strayed or stolen 
from him some time ago, and was found in the custody of a certain 
John Drake, when said Bead replevied the horse and got him and 
kept him in his possession for about six months, and then the 
widow of said Drake came and took him forcibly out of said Read's 
stable, he not being at home himself, and now keeps the horse and 
absolutely refuses to give him up again to the said Read. 

Resolved, That Messrs. James McClure, Peter Milleck and John 
Clingman, with the assistance of the Committee of Wyoming 
Township, be a joint committee to meet at the house of James Mc- 
Clure in said township, on Saturday the 22d day of this instant,

complainer should not have his horse upon proper proofs being 
made of his being his property, and the aforesaid persons are 
hereby authorised to judge and determine betwixt both parties, 
and upon proper proofs being made, give their final judgment in 
the matter. 

A certain Captain Jacob Links, of Buffalo Township, appealed 
to this Committee in consequence of a resolve of the Committee of 
said township, a copy of which is as follows, viz : 

" Jtesolvcd, That Jacob Links does return several sums of money 
which a number of the inhabitants of this township did deliver to 
him for the use of purchasing salt, he, said Links, acknowledging 
he could have had salt, but it being troublesome times he was afraid 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 361 

lie should suffer loss if lie would purchase the salt, and a certain 
evidence did declare that he said he was going on his own business 
to Philadelphia, and he, said Links, did not bring salt. 
" Dec. 21, 1776. By the Committee of Buffalo Township. 

WILL, IKWIN, Chairman.' 11 



In consequence of said appeal, Mr. Links was called in before 
this Committee and asked it' he had evidence to produce. He said 
lie had, but that he had them not then ready. 

Resolved, That Mr. Links's appeal be referred till the next meet- 
ing of Committee, and that his evidence be summoned to attend. 

WHEREAS, Col. or Capt. Benjamin Weiser has made complaint to 
this Committee that a number of persons who had been out under 
his command in the militia of this county in order to join the Con- 
tinental Army in New Jersey, and that the said persons were de- 
serted from him and returned home to this county, as the same is 
more fully expressed in a letter to this Committee, bearing date 

craving their assistance. 

Resolved, That a day of muster be assigned for the said persons 
to meet and march off to camp and serve out their time, allowing 
them to elect new officers if they had any objections to the old ones, 
certifying them also, that if they neglect to obey this resolve, 
they are to be taken up and committed as deserters. 

WHEREAS, this Committee have received a letter from the Com- 
mittee of the Township of Bald Eagle, together with a resolve of 
their Committee anent the selling of grain, &c., in their township, 
craving advice before they should carry their resolve into execution, 
of which the following is a copy : 

"Feb. 26th, 1777. We the Committee of the Township of Bald 
Eagle met, and as a complaint was made to us by a number of the 
inhabitants that there is a quantity of rye that is going to be car- 
ried out of the township for stilling, and that there are some of the 
inhabitants which have not sold their grain as yet, nor will not sell 
without they get eighteen pence or two shillings per bushel above 
the highest market price that grain is giving in the country, but 
will keep it up and carry it off ; and as it appears to us that a great 
number of the inhabitants of the township will suffer if such a 
practice is allowed to go on ; therefore, we 

"Resolved, That no stiller in this township shall buy any more 
grain this season for to still, or still any more than what he hath 
already by him. And further, we resolve that no grain be carried 
out of this township till the necessity of the poor is supplied, or till 
the first day of May next ; and any person having grain of any kind 
to dispose of and will not take the market price at Sunbury.reduct- 
ii:p a reasonable carriage or the highest price that it will be there 



362 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

when the grain is wanted, we allow to seize ou it and take it by 
force, and pay them their money. Given under our hands the day 
above mentioned. 

JOHN DICKSON, 
ROBERT LOVE, 
JAMES ERWIN." 

Resolved, That the Committee of Bald Eagle is the most compe- 
tent judges of the circumstances of the people in that township, 
that therefore the affair be referred back to them to act as they 
shall see just cause, but in the meantime that they be cautioned 
against using too much rigour in their measures, and that they 
keep by moderation as much as possible, and study a sort of 
medium between seizing of property and supplying the wants of the 
poor. 

WHEREAS, Report has been made to this Committee of a certain 
Henry Sterrat profaning the Sabbath in an unchristian and scan- 
dalous manner, causing his servants to maul rails, &c., on that day, 
and beating and abusing them if they offered to disobey such his 
unlawful commands. 

Resolved, That the Committee of Bald Eagle Township, where he 
now resides, be recommended to suppress such like practices to the 
utmost of their power. 

Resolved, That this Committee be adjourned till Tuesday the 
loth of April next, when it is again to meet at the house of Geo. 
McCandlish. 



April 15th, 1777. 

The Committee met according to adjournment, Mr. Thomas 
Jordan in the chair. 

TFHEREAS, a certain Jacob Trictbrueh, having disobeyed a sum- 
mons issued by this Committee at their last sitting for him to have 
compeared at this meeting of Committee as evidence in the affair 
of Jacob Links, 

Rexolved, That a special warrant be now granted for bringing 
him before this Committee to-morrow at nine o'clock. 



April 17lk, 1777. 

Jacob Driesbach was brought before the Committee, and being 
duly sworn, he saith that he asked Capt. Links if he was the man 
that was to go to Philadelphia for salt, and the said Links answered 
that he was, and said that he had a sister in Philadelphia, and 
wanted to see her, and said it would suit him better .to go than 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 363 

another who had no errand of their own, but says for his own part 
lie was willing to allow Capt. Links whatever came to his share of 
the expenses at the same rate that the rest of his employers allowed 
him, and further saith not. 

JACOB DREISBACH. 



Mr. George Overmire, a member of this Committee, declareth 
that he was present when Capt. Links agreed with his employers, 
and says that he was to have his expenses allowed him whether he 
got salt or not. 

Capt. Links compeared and produced his account for travelling 
expenses, which amounted to 5 15, acknowledging the receipt of 
39 from his employers, part of which he had yet in his hands, 
and says he could have got salt, but it being salt that had been 
already purchased or allotted for the nse of this county, and was 
to be distributed over the county at large, it was not answering 
his purpose to bring it, and there was no other salt he could get 
to purchase. 

Resolved, That Capt. Links be authorized to keep the sum of 
two shillings and eleven pence half penny out of every pound of 
his employers' money for payment of his expenses, as his account 
appears to this Committee to be very moderate. 

WHEREAS a certain William Read, of Bald Eagle Township, has 
been taken into custody and carried before this committee to 
answer for his conduct in refusing to associate and bear arms in 
behalf of the States, and being asked his reason for so refusing, his 
answers were as follows, viz : 

That he was once concerned in a riot that happened in Ireland, 
commonly known by the name of the Hearts of Steel, and was 
taken prisoner, tried and acquitted upon his taking an oath of 
allegiance to the king, and coming [under] solemn obligations never 
to lift arms against him for the future, he therefore looked upon it 
as a breach of his oath to muster or bear nrms in behalf of the 
States, as the arms of the States were now employed against the 
king to whom he had sworn allegiance. 

Being further asked if he had any objections to the cause the 
United States were now engaged in, he said he had not any, and 
would be as forward and willing as any to join in it, could he do 
it without breach of his oath. Being asked if he would take an 
oath of allegiance to the United States, he said he would if it did 
not oblige him to take up arms. 

Accordingly an oath was tendered to him, and he swore as 
follows: ' 

I do swear to be true to the United States of America, and do 
renounce and disclaim all allegi-.'.nce to the king of Great Britain, 



364 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

and promise that I will not either directly or indirectly speak or 
act any thing in prejudice to the cause or safety of the States, or 
lift arras against them, or be any way assistant to their declared 
enemies in any case whatsoever. 

WM. HEAD. 

Whereupon, the Committee resolved to dismiss him upon his 
paying the sum of seventeen shillings and one penny half penny, 
being the costs of bringing him before the Committee. 

In consequence of sundry reports from different parts of the 
country, of a dangerous plot's being on foot by some of our ene- 
mies to bring on an Indian war, and in particular by an intercepted 
letter now before this Committee wrote by a certain Nicholas Pick- 
ard, directed to a certain John Pickard at the house of Casper 
Head, in Perms Township with all speed, a copy of which was 
transmitted to us by Nathaniel Landon, of Wyoming, and is now 
before this Committee, and is as follows : 

"WYOMING, March 7, 7777. 

" Worthy Friend I cannot omit but write you a few lines that I 
am in a good state of health, and further I let you know that as 
soon as the river is clear of ice, we shall march from every part, 
therefore I would advise you as a friend to go out of the way, for 
we then, as soon as the river is clear of ice, intend to cut all off, 
therefore I think it is better for you to go out of the way with the 
rest, for against May it will go as you heard it should go. Perhaps 
against Easter I will be with you, then 1 shall tell you further and 
give you a better account of it. No more at present, but I remain 
your trusty friend. Give my compliments to them all a thousand 
times. Tell them all that I intend to see them soon. I have wrote 
to you as much as I durst. 

(Signed) NICHOLAS PICKARD." 

In consequence of which letter. Col. James Murray and Capt. 
James Espy were sent out by order of this Committee in search of 
the said Nicholas and John Pickard. 



April 17, 1777. 

Capt. Espy returned and brought the body of John Pickard be- 
fore this Committee, and being legally sworn upon the Holy Evan- 
gelist of Almighty God, He saith that he went up the river some 
time about last Christmas from Middletown to Wyoming, in a boat, 
and at Wyoming he met with the aforesaid Nicholas Pickard, his 
own cousin, and that they two went by land about twenty miles 
further up the river to a place called Tankhannock, to see some 
friends, and being in the house of a certain Nicholas Phillips, he, 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. S65 

the said Phillips,'told his cousin and him that the Indians had told 
him they would comedown and cut all off against this spring, or 
as soon as they got. their orders, and that they would in par- 
ticular strike upon the Mohawk river, and the waters of the Sus- 
quehannough, and that when he parted with the said Nicholas at 
that time, he promised to write to the deponent as soon as he 
thought there was immediate danger, so that he might go out of 
the way, withal telling him that the Indians did not want to kill 
any that did not take up arms against them, so that if he would go 
out of the way, or lie still on one side, there would be no danger of 
him. And further told him about a fortnight ago that there were 
500 Indians at Shamung waiting for orders from Niagara. Like- 
wise that he the deponent asked the said Nicholas what his reason 
was for coming down to Caspar Read's at that time, (being about a 
fortnight ago,) and he told him that the Yankeys were going to ap- 
prehend him for a tory, and that a certain Dennis Clark came to 
him about midnight and gave him notice of it, and accordingly he 
made his escape down the river to Caspar Read's or that neighbor- 
hood. And that he told the deponent that he lias wrote him two 
letters, one of which was sent by a man of the name of Clark, 
which the deponent thinks is the same Clark that gave him notice 
to go off, and that Clark took sick upon the way, and when he 
could not proceed forward with the letter by reason of his illness 
he threw the letter in the fire and burnt it, and that the contents of 
the letter was that the Indians were coming down, and for the de- 
ponent to go out of the way; and further saith not. 

JOHN PICKARD. 

An oath of allegiance to the United States being proposed to 
John Pickard. and bail for his good behavior, be complied with 
both, and produced Caspar Read as his bail, who bound himself in 
a bond of an hundred pounds for the good and orderly behavior of 
John Pickard for a year and a day next to come after this date. 
Then the oath of allegiance was tendered to him and he swore as 
follows : 

I do swear to be true to the United States of America, and do re- 
nounce and disclaim all allegiance to the King of Great Britain, 
antl promise that I will not either directly or indirectly speak or act 
any thing in prejudice to the cause of safety of the states, or lift 
arms against them, or be any way assistant to their declared ene- 
mies in any case whatsoever. So help me God. 

JOHN PICKAUD. 

Upon the satisfaction given to the Committee by the said John 
Pickard, it was unanimously agreed that he be dismissed. 



366 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

April 17, 1777. 

Colonel Murray returned and brought the body of Nicholas Pick- 
ard before this Committee and being interrogated anent the afore- 
said letter confesseth that he wrote it, and a copy of the letter being 
read unto him lie acknowledged the same in every particular, and 
further confesseth that he is in connection with the ministerial 
troops at Niagara, and that he has taken an oath of allegiance to 
the King of Britain, but says he was forced to it, and further con- 
cerning the letter he says that he wrote it in a kind of mysterious 
manner, by reversing the letters so that it might not be understood 
in case it should be intercepted, and that he sent it by one Dennis 
Clark of Wyoming, and that he had seen Clark since that time, 
who told him that he took sick upon the way, and seeing that he 
could not get the letter forwarded he had burnt it. 

He likewise says that one Nicholas Phillips at Tankhannock noti- 
fied him and several others thereabouts to move away with their 
families and connections to a place called Tiogo in the Indian 
country, as the English were coming down to cut off the inhabi- 
tants upon the waters of the Mohawk river and the Susquehan- 
nough. That there were 15,000 of the ministerial troops at Niagara, 
which were to be put into three Divisions; 4,000 of them were to 
comedown the North Branch and 4,000 down the West Branch 
of Susquehannough, and 7,000 down the Mohawk river, and a 
number of Indians were to be along with them, and that the person 
who informed this Phillips of it was one John DePew, who is gone 
off and joined the English at Niagara, and that lie sent him this 
piece of information by an Indian after he went off. 

Upon due deliberation upon the examination of Nicholas Pickard, 
the Committee are unanimously of opinion that he is an enemy to 
the States ; therefore 

Resolved, That he be immediately sent from before this Com- 
mittee to the Supreme Executive Council of this State, to be dealt 
with as their superior judgments shall direct them in the case, and 
that John Coats be the person who shall carry him thither, and 
that he call as many to his assistance as may be needful. 

Besolced, That this Committee be adjourned till the 10th day of 
June next, when they are to meet at the house of Mr. Laughlan 
McCartney in Northumberland.

The Committee to Supreme Executive Council. 

April J 9th, 1777. 

To the Honorable the Supreme Executive Council of the State of 
Pennsylvania : 

MOST HONOURABLE : We, the Committee of Safety for the 
County of Northumberland having had before us some affairs re- 
lating to a Suspected plot to be on footing against the peace and 
Safety of this County and State by some of our own Bosom Ene- 
mies in encouraging the wild savages to commence hostility against 
us, and not only so but upon all accounts that we can learn matters 
of that kind have a very gloomy aspect ; and considering the sore 
circumstances of this County at present on account of the want of 
arms and ammunition we could make but a poor defence if we 
were to be attacked. The rnen who were out in the militia last 
winter from this County having left the principal! part of their 
best arms att the Continental Store at Morristown, which were a 
great part of the arms fit for service that could be collected in the 
County. We therefore beg your wisdoms may take our case into 
consideration and grant us such supplys as may enable us to stand 
our ground against all our hostile enemies of what ever kind. We 
need not add more particulars, as John Coats one of our members 
is now sent down to you witli a prisoner who will deliver you this 
letter and give intelligence of all particulars come to our know- 
ledge. 

By order of Committee.

PROCEEDINGS OF COMMITTEE 



James McLene to President of Congress. 
[Read June 13. 1776.] 

SHIPPENSBURGH, June 8, 1776. 

SIR : I am ordered by the Committee of Cumberland County to 
send you the enclosed Resolve. 
And am, sir, your most obedient, humble servant, 

JAMES McLENE, Chairman. 
To the Hon. JOHN HANCOCK, Esq. 

IN COMMITTEE, SHIPPENSBURGH, June 7, 1776. 

The Committee of West-Pennsborough Township, iu this County, 
on the 4th instant seized sixteen kegs of Gunpowder, which, by 
letters produced to this Committee one signed Lewis Morris, 
bearing date at Philadelphia, 14th of May last, addressed to Major 
Ephraim Elaine, bearing date the 4th instant, and addressed to 
Captain George Morgan, at Fort Pitt appear to be part of a ton 
of Gunpowder ordered by the said Lewis Morris to the said 
Ephraim Elaine, and by him forwarded to Fort Pitt. We have not 
been able to discover, neither by the letters nor by the testimony 
of Ephraim Elaine, to what use the same gunpowder is to be applied; 
therefore suspect it must be private property, and not designed for 
publick use, which, we apprehend, may be very injurious to the 
common cause. 

Resolved, unanimously, That the aforesaid sixteen kegs of Gun- 
powder, now under the care of the Committee of West-Pennsbor- 
ough Township, together with nine kegs more in the custody of 
Ephraim Elaine, at his plantation, near Carlisle, be immediately 
delivered to Stephen Duncan, Samuel Laird, and James Pollock, of 
Carlisle, by them to be kept in the publick Magazine at Carlisle 
until our proceedings therein shall be communicated to the honour- 
able the Continental Congress at Philadelphia, and until an order 
for the further disposal thereof, signed by the President of the 
Congress, shall be produced to them, which order they are hereby 
ordered to obey. 

Signed by order of the Committee : 

JAMES McLENE, Chairman. 
To the Hon. JOHN HANCOCK, Esq.

IN COMMITTEE, AT CARLISLE, June 28, 1776. 

WHEREAS, complaints were made to this Committee that the 
conduct and sentiments of John Clark, of Allen Township, in this 
County, miller, have been, arid still are, unfriendly to the liberties 
of the United Colonies : And whereas, in pursuance of notice, the 
said John Clark appeared twice before this Committee, when sun 
dry witnesses were examined upon oath, by whose testimony the 
charges exhibited against him are fully proved : And whereas, the 
said John Clark declined making any acknowledgments to his 
injured country, and in manifest contempt of this Committee, 
thought fit to set out for his own habitation whilst the Committee 
had his case under their consideration. 

Resolved, that the said John Clark is an enemy to the rights and 
liberties of the United Colonies ; and it is recommended to all the 
friends of liberty that they have no dealings nor connections with 
the said John Clark in future, as they regard the welfare of their 
injured country. 

Resolved, That the above Resolution be published in the news- 
papers of this Province. 

Signed by order of the Committee : 

JOHN MONTGOMERY, Chairman. 



A Petition from the Privates of the First Battalion of Militia in 
the County of Cumberland, was presented to the House, and fol- 
lows in these words, viz : 

" To the Honourable the Representatives of the Freemen of the 

Province of Pennsylvania, in General Assembly met. 

" The Petition of the Privates of the First Battalion of Militia 
in Cumberland County, most humbly showeth : 

" That your Petitioners, desirous of exerting themselves in 
defence of American Liberty agair.st the tyranny of a cruel and 
desolating enemy, beg leave to lay before the honourable House 
some amendments, which they wish to have made in the Articles 
of Association framed at your last sitting, in order that they may 
sign them with that freedom which every true patriot and friend 
to American liberty ought to feel himself possessed of; without 
which amendments, the liberties of the Privates of the Association 
appear to be, in a great measure, taken away. 

" First. The time of keeping the Associators out on actual ser- 
vice is no where limited, either in the Rules or Articles of Associa- 
tion ; which, your Petitioners apprehend, puts then* in a worse 
situation than the inlisted Troops. We submit it to the wisdom of 
the honourable House whether two or three months are not suffi- 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 471 

cient to keep out any party of Associators at one time, until relieved 
by others at the call of the Assembly, or Committee of Safety. 

" Secondly. The Articles, as they now stand, establish all the 
officers of the Association during life, or until otherwise removed 
by resignation, promotion, or broken by the sentence of a General 
Court of Associators. "We would pray the honourable House to 
reconsider this matter, and see if it is not more agreeable to the 
rights of freemen and the Constitution of this Province, that all 
Military Officers, not exceeding the rank of a Colonel of a Bat- 
talion, should be voted in by ballot annually, in the same manner 
as Members of the Assembly, Sheriffs, and other civil Officers ; the 
Field-Officers, Standard-bearer, and Adjutant, by the Battalion at 
large ; and the Officers of a Troop or Company by the Troop or 
Company. 

" Your petitioners are of opinion that Officers voted in in this 
manner would by no means be liable to disgrace upon the promo- 
tion of others in their room, as their going out of office might not 
be for any bad conduct alleged against them, but in order to serve 
others equally worthy of notice; for annual election is so essen- 
tially necessary to the liberty of freemen, that your Petitioners 
hope the honourable House will be careful not to deprive their con- 
stituents of it. 

" Thirdly. Your Petitioners humbly conceive that the Regimen- 
tal and General Courts of Associators should consist of an equal 
number of Officers and Court- Associators, (one of the said officers 
to be President,) as we can see no reason why there should be a 
superior number of officers in the said Courts ; because officers and 
privates of the Association, being engaged in the same cause, 
ought to have the same mode of trial, be the offence what it will. 

" Fourthly. The thirty-first article of Association enjoins the 
Associators to be subject to all Rules and Articles already 
made by the honourable Continental Congress for the government 
of the Continental Troops when called by the Assembly, or the 
Committee of Safety in recess of Assembly, into actual service. 
Your Petitioners pray that the honourable House would please to 
amend said article by allowing the Associators to be tried for all 
offences and crimes, of which they may be guilty, as mentioned in 
the said Rules and Articles when on actual service, in the same 
way as is proposed above, viz : by an equal number of their own 
officers and court-associators ; and, where the punishment directed 
by said rules and articles is to be whipping, and the crime not made 
felony by the civil law, that the delinquent shall have it in his 
power to evade such whipping by paying a certain fine such as 
the wisdom of the honourable House shall point out, and in such 
time as shall be thought proper after conviction. This indulgence, 



472 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS. 

your Petitioners apprehend, will not be attended with any bad con- 
sequences to the Army, as the Associators are on a different foot- 
ing from the Continental Troops, and may, through inadvertency 
or ignorance, be guilty of an offence that would subject them to a 
punishment which would be a lasting stain to them and their 
family, more especially if they have been of any repute at home. 

" Lastly. Your Petitioners pray the honourable House to consider 
the inequality of fines respecting Non-Associators ; the grievances 
whereof are so great and many, that it would be giving you too 
much trouble to enumerate them, as we are well assured they are 
fully laid before the honourable House in a Petition from the Com- 
mittee of Privates of the City and Suburbs of Philadelphia, and 
perhaps, by other Committees. 

" Your Petitioners most humbly pray the honourable House to 
take these matters into their most serious consideration, and grant 
the amendments herein proposed, or such redress of the grievances 
we complain of, 'as to their wisdom shall appear right. And your 
Petitioners, as in duty bound, will pray. 

" Signed in behalf of the twelve companies of the First Battalion 
of Militia in Cumberland County, by order of Delegates from each 
of the said Companies.

IN COMMITTEE, 141/1 February, 1775. 

At a meeting of the Committee of York County, at Yorktown, 
in Pennsylvania, the 14th day of February, 1775. Present thirty - 
nine Members. 

The Committee took into consideration the Proceedings of the 
late Provincial Convention, &c. 

1. Resolved unanimously, That we heartily approve of the Pro- 
ceedings of that Convention. 

'2. Resolved unanimously, The Committee apprehending, that from 
the Non-lmportant'n Agreement, and the present state of publick 
affairs, unless great care be taken, there would, in a short time, be 
a scarcity of Gunpowder, which is so necessary to our Indian trade 
and the hunters of this Province ; therefore, Resolved, That we 
recommend it to the several Members of this Committee, that they, 
in their respective Townships, with the assistance of the Township 
Committee-men, do discourage the consuming of that article but 
for the most useful purposes. 

3. Resolved unanimously, It being represented that sundry persons 
in this County had formed themselves into Military Associations, 
and that they would discontinue them if disagreeable to this Com- 
mittee ; upon consideration of which, Lesolved unanimously, That 
we by no means would discourage those proceedings ; on the con- 
trary, we are of opinion that such Associations, if conducted with 
prudence, moderation, and a strict regard to good order, under 
the direction of men of probity and understanding, would tend 
much to the security of this country against the attempts of our 
enemies. 

4. Resolved unanimously, That we recommend to the inhabitants 
of this County a strict adherence to the Association of the Con- 
tinental Congress, and the directions of our late Provincial Con- 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 533 

vention ; and that in case any Township Committee should meet 
with obstruction in carrying the same into execution, that we will, 
and the rest of the County ought, to assist them. 

5. Resolved unanimously. That the Township Committee-men in 
this County ought, as soon as possible, to collect the Flour and 
Grain subscribed for the poor of Boston, and convert the same into 
cash ; and that they immediately pay such cash and all other 
moneys subscribed, into the hands of Messrs. John Donaldson and 
George Irwin, who, with the direction of any ten of the Committee, 
are to remit the same in Bills of Exchange to the Committee of 
Boston, for the poor of that place. 

6. Resolved unanimously, That in case the Committee of Corres- 
pondence of this Province appointed at the last Convention, shall 
think proper, or if a majority of the County Committee shall con- 
sider it expedient that another Provincial Convention should be 
held, we do appoint James Ewing, Michael Swope, James Smith, 
Thomas Hartley, and Henry Slagle, Esquires, and George Irwin, 
George Eichelberger, David Kennedy, and John Houston, or any 
live or more of them, as the Deputies of this County to attend such 
Convention, and to agree to such matters and things as may be 
deemed necessary for the safety and welfare of this Province, or the 
common cause of American Liberty.

Letter to the Committee of Boston. 


IN COMMITTEE, YOEK-TOWN, April 13, 1775. 

HoxoiliiED FRIENDS AND COUNTIIYMEN: Sorry are we to hear 
that the hand of oppression still bears hard on your city, and that 
the distresses of your poor are not yet alleviated. If your misfor- 
tunes and sufferings could be divided, the inhabitants of this 
County would cheerfully bear a part. This, it seems, cannot be 
clone; your destined town must stand the shock alone. We want 
words to express the high sense we have of your conduct and 
virtue; few men in the world would have opposed despotism, and 
stood the torrent of ministerial vengeance with so much steadiness, 
intrepidity and resolution, as the inhabitants of your Town and 
Country have done. You have true notions of liberty. You have 
purchased it. You ought to enjoy it. The noble stand made by 
the Province of Massachusetts-Bay, if faithfully adhered to, has 
laid the foundation for establishing American liberty on the most 
firm basis. The other Colonies will be equally gainers by a favour- 
able determination of the contest, and will not desert you in the 



534 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

time of danger ; they will doubtless grant you the most effectual 
assistance. 

This County, upon the earliest intelligence of your distress, for- 
warded subscriptions for the poor of Boston. Grain was generally 
subscribed ; we expected to have sent it last fall, but could not col- 
lect it at any seaport before the winter season came on, so that the 
shipping of it was postponed till the spring. Upon the meeting of 
the Committee of this County in February last, shortly after the 
receipt of the King's speech to the Parliament, it was thought that 
it would not be safe to send Grain. The Committee, therefore, 
determined to convert the Grain into cash, and remit the same in 
Specie or Bills of Exchange to you. Your poor have suffered much 
by this Resolution, as the price of Wheat is greatly fallen. The 
subscriptions of but a part of the County are yet to come in. We 
send you the sum of 246 8s. 10d., to be remitted to you in Bills of 
Exchange or Specie, by Messrs. Jonathan B. Smith and John 
Mitchell, Merchants of Philadelphia, which be pleased to distribute 
among our poor and unhappy Countrymen in your Town, or in its 
neighbourhood, in such manner, as you shall think proper. As 
there are a few disaffected people in this Province, we must trouble 
you to publish the receipt of the donations as is mentioned in the 
enclosed paper. Your friends here are numerous, and most 
heartily interested themselves in your favour. As soon as the rest 
of the subscriptions in this County are paid, we shall cheerfully 
remit the same to you. 

We wish you a speedy relief from all your sufferings, and are, 
gentlemen, with the greatest respect, your real friends and most 
obedient humble servants,

. IN COMMITTEE, YORKTOWN, July l, 1775. 

GENTLEMEN : We had the honour of receiving your favour of 
the 15th ultimo, enclosing a resolve of the honourable Continental 
Congress of the 14th ultimo. We immediately summoned the 
Committee of this County, and laid before them your letter, &c. 
The Committee proceeded to the choice of officers fit to be recom- 
mended to the Congress, to command the company of riflemen to 
be raised, and appointed six Commissioners to provide necessaries 
for them. Every resolve passed in Committee with the greatest 
unanimity, and the gentlemen of Yorktown, after the meeting' 
dispersed themselves through the County, and assisted the officers 
in recruiting. 

The spirit of the people on this occasion gave the Committee 
infinite pleasure. The men seemed actuated with the greatest zeal, 
and thought themselves honoured in having their names enrolled 
among the Sons of Liberty, who are to tight for their Country, and 
in defence of their dearest rights and privileges. The only uneasi- 
ness they feel is, that they are not at this moment at the scene of 
action. From the spirit of the soldiers we entertain the most flat- 



536 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

tering hopes that they will prove serviceable to the cause of liberty, 
and reflect honour on this Country. 

The principal people here have caught the spirit of the honour- 
able Congress, and in their small circle have done everything in 
their power to animate their neighbors to stand forth in this day of 
despotism, and resist the arbitrary and unjust measures of Parlia- 
ment with all the power which Heaven has given them. And we 
have the pleasure to inform you that their labours have not been in 
vain, and that the County is ready to strain every nerve to put into 
execution any measures which the Congress may judge necessary 
to our common defence. 

The officers we take the liberty to recommend to you are, Captain 
Michael Dowdel, Lieutenants Henry Miller, John Dill, and John 
Watson. They are men whose courage we have the highest opinion 
of. The company, including officers and soldiers, are beyond the 
number fixed for this County, and as General Gates thought it im- 
proper to discharge any, we have sent them all. 

We request the favour of you that proper care be taken that none 
are draughted out of their company into another. This is the re- 
quest of the inhabitants of this County, many of them having their 
dearest friends engaged in the service, and would not by any means 
have them taken from their present officers. 

We hope no alteration will be made in the officers. The Captain 
has behaved very well on this occasion, and has done all in his 
power, by advancing money, &c., to forward the important common 
cause. 

Mr. Miller is known to some of you, gentlemen." The other offi- 
cers are men of worth and property ; they nave all wives and 
families, and are entitled to the warmest thanks of their Country. 

The Commissioners appointed to provide necessaries for the men, 
will forward their accounts as soon as they possibly can. 

We are, gentlemen, your most humble servants, 

JAMES SMITH, JOSEPH DONALDSON,

To the Pennsylvania Delegates in Congress. 

P. S. The Company began their march the nearest road to Bos- 
ton this day. 



IN COMMITTEE, July 28, 1775. 

At a meeting of the Committee and the Officers of the Militia 
Companies of York County, at York, held this day. 

Present, forty-five County Committee-men, besides the said Offi- 
cers. James Smith, Esq., in the Chair. 

The Committee and Officers divided the County into five Districts, 



AXD MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 537 

or Divisions, and formed five Battalions. The Committee then, 
with the Officers of the Militia Companies of the respective Dis- 
tricts and Battalions, appointed Judges, and proceeded to vote by 
ballot for Field-Officers to be commissioned, when James Smith, 
Esq., was chosen Colonel ; Thomas Hartley, Esq , Lieutenant- 
Colonel ; and Joseph Donaldson and Michael Swoope, Esq., were 
chosen Majors of the First Battalion. Robert McPherson, Esq., 
Colonel ; David Kennedy, Lieutenant-Colonel ; Moses McClean 
and Hugh Dunwoodie, were chosen Majors of the Second Battal- 
ion. Richard McAllister, Esq., Colonel ; Henry Slagle, Esq., Lieu- 
tenant-Colonel ; and John Andrews and Joseph Jeffries were 
chosen Majors of the Third Battalion. William Smith, Esq., Colo- 
nel; Francis Holton, Lieutenant-Colonel ; and Jacob Gibson and 
John Finley, were chosen Majors of the Fourth Battalion. And 
Matthew Dill, Esq., Colonel ; William Rankin, Esquire, Lieuten- 
ant-Colonel; and Robert Stevenson and Gerhard Gress, Majors of 
the Fifth Battalion. 

The Committee, and the Officers of the said Militia Companies 
thereupon proceeded to vote for Field-Officers for the Battalion of 
Minute-men for York County, proper to be commissioned ; when 

Richard McAllister, Esquire, was chosen Colonel ; 

Thomas Hartley, Esquire, was chosen Lieutenant-Colonel; and 

David Grier, Esquire, was chosen Major of said Battalion. 

IN COMMITTEE, July 29, 1775. 

Present, the Committee-men as mentioned yesterday. James 
Smith, Esq., in the chair. 

The Committee proceeded as follows : 

Resolved, That in conformity to the direction of the Assembly of 
this Province, and with a regard to the regulations of the Conti- 
nental Congress, we do direct that rive Companies of Minute-men 
be formed out of the several Districts of this County, that is to say, 
one Company in each Division by draughts or Volunteers from the 
several Militia Companies, each Company to consist of a Captain, 
two Lieutenants, and an Ensign, four Sergeants, four Corporals, a 
Drummer and Fifer, and sixty-eight or more Privates; and it is 
expected, that if there be a defect of Arms for these men, when 
there is a necessity of going Into service, that the respective Bat- 
talions to which they belong will furnish with the necessary Arms. 

Resolved, That if the County Committee-men and Assistant 
Committee-men, or a majority of them in any District, are at any 
time of opinion that an additional Company or Companies of Min- 
ute-men can be raised in their District, they may order the same 
to be done, which Company or Companies are to be under the same 
Field-Officers, orders, rules, and regulations, with the said other 



538 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

Companies of Minute-men. The whole Battalion of each Division 
or District are directed to meet some time in the next week, or in 
the week following, and draught the Volunteers or proper persons 
as Minute-men for the respective Companies, who are to sign an 
attestation similar to that mentioned in the proceedings of this 
Committee. The subscribers are then to proceed to choose the 
Otiicers of the respective Companies, and make return of their 
names to the Field-Officers of the said Battalion of Minute-men, in 
order that they may be commissioned. 

Resolved, That in order to prevent confusion and disorder, that 
no new Companies of Militia be formed in any Township, without 
the consent of the Committee-men of the Township, and three or 
more of the County Committee-men. 

N. B. The Companies of Yorktown, Manchester, Windsor, 
Codorus, York, and Ilellam Townships, form the First Battalion ; 
the Companies of Cumberland, Hamilton's Bann, Strabane, Men- 
alien, Mount- Joy, and Tyrone Townships form the Second Battal- 
ion; the Companies of Heidelberg, Berwick, Paradise, Mount 
Pleasant, Manheim, and Germany Townships the Third Battalion ; 
Chanceford, Shrewsbury, Fawn, and Hopewell Townships the 
Fourth Battalion ; and the Companies of Dover, Newberry, Mon- 
aghan, Warrington, Huntington, and Reading Townships the Fifth 
Battalion. 

GEORGE LEWIS LEFLER, Clerk. 



IN COMMITTEE, YORKTOWN, Auqust 22* 1775. 

WHEREAS, The Committee of York County has received infor- 
mation that sundry Butchers and Drovers from Maryland and 
elsewhere have lately been purchasing Sheep in this County, con- 
trary to the Resolutions of the Convention of the Province of Penn- 
sylvania. 

These are therefore to give publick notice to all such persons who 
purchase Sheep to kill, or sell to butchers, that if they hereafter be 
detected in purchasing any Sheep in this County, or driving any 
through it purchased in this Province, under four years old, that 
they will be stopped, and treated as enemies of their country. 

By order of the Committee : 

THOMAS ARMOR, Clerk.

Meeting of Freeholders of York County. 

IN COMMITTEE, YORK, August 31., 1775. 

The Freeholders and other inhabitants of York County, entitled 
to vote for Representatives in Assembly, are hereby required to 
meet at the Court-House in York Town, on Tuesday, the seven- 
teenth day of October next, to vote, by ballot or ticket, for sixty- 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 539 

one persons as a Committee for York County, to continue for the 
space of one year then next following, if from the change of pub- 
lick affairs they may think it expedient to dissolve themselves 
sooner. And as, from the dangers and necessities of the times, 
powers of the greatest magnitude may be exercised by those per- 
sons or their Delegates, it is expected that the meeting of the 
Freemen will be general, and that they will be judicious in the 
choice of persons to represent them. Each Township is desired to 
choose an Inspector, to attend at the time and place aforesaid, who 
will be qualified agreeable to the rules prescribed for the election 
of the present Committee. 
By order of the Committee : 

JAMBS SMITH, Chairman. 



IN COMMITTEE, YOHKTOWN, September 14, 1775. 
GENTLEMEN: We take this opportunity of returning to you an 
account of the number of Associations, and a list of the Officers' 
names of this county : The number of Associators that has been 
received by the Committee is 3,349. There is a greater number of 
Associates than the foregoing whose names we have not received ; 
for the present we mention that number. There were about 900 
non-Associators returned to the committee on the 28th of July 
last, many of whom have since associated ; we cannot at this time 
undertake to return an exact list of the noil- Associators, but shall 
do the same as soon as possible. The Associators and the non-Asso- 
ciators that we have an account of are chiefly taxable. We enclose 
you the proceedings of the Committee and Officers of the Militia 
Companies of this county. The divisions or battalions were formed 
and the seniority of each battalion fixed on by a unanimous vote ; 
the mode fallen on was that each battalion should take rank 
according to the time of a majority of its companies having asso- 
ciated this gave universal satisfaction. We, who now address 
you, are members of one or another of the Battalions, and are very 
sensible that if seniority were now to be fixed by lot, it would tend 
to create confusion and injure the common cause, therefore, hope 
that commissions may be granted agreeable to the regulations of 
the committee and officers. In forming these battalions, great 
regard was had to the situation of the County and convenience of 
the inhabitants. The battalions do not all consist of an equal 
number, but none of less than 500 men, which you will see by the 
enclosed papers the three first battalions are large enough for 
regiments, but you may give them what names you think proper. 
In the said list we return you the names of the officers according 
to seniority, agreed to in their respective battalions, in order to be 
commissioned. One of these battalions has but five companies, yet 



540 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

they are so very large that a single company may act as a grand 
division until they can be divided with satisfaction and conven- 
iency to the inhabitants, in which the field officers, when commis- 
sioned, can very much assist. The particular townships of each 
battalion are to be regarded. The persons appointed for officers 
are generally agreeable to the people. We have been given to 
understand that Capt. James Dill, the officers of his company, and 
some others, are dissatisfied with the choice of Matthew Dill, Esq., 
for Colonel of the Fifth Battalion, that they were desirous of a 
new election and had written to you for that purpose. As to this, 
we can inform you, that without any confusion or disputation, and 
with the greatest fairness, Matthew Dill, Esq., was chosen Colonel 
of that division. A new election would answer no good purpose, 
but would tend to encourage faction, which we happily avoided in 
this County. We also enclose you a list of the officers' names in the 
Minute men of this County, raised in pursuance of the direction of 
the Assembly of this province, and the recommendation of the 
Continental Congress. These are the officers and men raised by 
them the persons that are ready to be first called forth from this 
County for the service of the Common Cause. We are also of 
opinion that in the country it will not be so convenient to cast 
lots for whole companies that are to march in case of a call, as the 
discipline of all the companies are not alike; many have not the 
same advantages or opportunities to be taught, and a number in 
every company could not go, so that lot might often fall on com- 
panies that the community could have no reliance on ; we therefore 
apprehend it will do better to fix on individuals that are to act in 
the first instance as Minute men. We have hitherto been unani- 
mous and hope that the conduct of this County will receive your 
countenance and approbation. There are nearly 100 persons asso- 
ciated in Germany Township, but as there is some little confusion 
concerning their officers, we shall defer sending their names for 
some time. 
We are, gentlemen, 

Your very humble servants,

matter.

next, to meet at the Court- House in York. 

THOMAS ARMOR, Clerk. 



IN COMMITTEE, 5tli February, 1776. 

At a meeting of the Committee of Correspondence for the County 
of York, held this day. 

The committee taking into consideration the state of the country, 
are of opinion that several companies, beside the two already 
ordered, might be immediately raised in this county for the Conti- 
nental service, provided they were officered in this county. That, 
considering the zeal and patriotic spirit of the people, we think 
that in the late appointment of officers in the troops to be raised in 
this province, this county has not had its proportion. Therefore, 

Resolved, That the chairman of this committee do write a letter 
to the delegates of this province in Congress inclosing this reso- 
lution, to be laid before the Congress, and expressing the will, 
ingness of this county to exert themselves to the utmost in de- 
fence of the Common Cause, with the request that if any more 
troops are soon necessary to be raised in this province in the Con- 
tinental service, that this county be honored with the officering six 
companies, and recommending the Field Officers of the battalion, 
as we make no doubt but the greater part of the men for the com- 
panies might be raised in York County. 

Resolved, That a letter be written by the Chairman to the Com- 
mittee of Safety, requesting their weight and concurrence with 
the Congress in favor of the above application. 

THOMAS ARMOR, Clerk, 



Letter to the General Committee. 
i IN COMMITTEE, YORK, February 5th, 1776. 
GENTLEMEN : The inhabitants of this county, who have been 
always ready to grant their assistance in favor of liberty since the 
commencement of the present unhappy dispute between Great 
Britain and these Colonies, consider that on account of the short- 
ness of the notice given by the board, that they have not their pro- 
portion of the officers appointed in the different battalions. The 
service suffers by this. The best men and the flower of the youth 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 543 

will not engage with strangers. The two Companies ordered in 
this county are already nearly completed ; but Officers from other 
counties will not be equally successful. Had more companies been 
ordered in York County, and the Officers recommended from 
hence, we apprehend they would have been in great forwardness. 
This county is not very ambitious of having officers, but it still 
gives disgust to many persons to see numbers in the other counties, 
not even equally qualified, and who have done nothing in the com- 
mon cause preferred, and themselves unnoticed. 

The Committee of Correspondence met on the 5th inst.,and came 
to the resolutions, which I beg leave to inclose, and hope that they 
will meet with your approbation and weight. As it is probable 
from the present situation of Mr. Swope's family that he will not 
be able to attend you soon, Mr. Hartley, the bearer, will be ready 
to wait on the Board, and give them some material information 
relating to the above, as also some other matters of consequence. 

I am, Gentlemen, with the greatest Respect, 
Your most Humble Servant, 

JAMES SMITH, Chairman. 



HANOVER TOWN, HEIDELBERG TOWNSHIP, 

March SO, 1776. 

WHEREAS, Information has been given unto us, the subscribers, 
Members of the General Committee for York County, that a cer- 
tain Robert Owings of Heidelberg Township aforesaid, had, on the 
15th day of this instant, in an open and publick manner, taken the 
liberty to speak in an unbecoming manner against the measures 
now pursuing for the maintaining our invaluable rights and privi- 
leges ; and, being called before us, was duly convicted thereof by 
sufficient testimony. Whereupon he, the said Robert Owings, ex- 
pressing his hearty and unfeigned sorrow for his said conduct, 
agreed further to signify his entire disapprobation thereof, by sign- 
ing the underwritten declaration, which was voted satisfactory.

[The Declaration not found.] 



IN COMMITTEE, YORK, May ss, 1776. 

SIR : On Saturday last we were favoured with the company of 
several of your respectable body, joined by others the worthy citi- 



544 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

zens of Philadelphia, who laid before our town Committee, imme- 
diately assembled for that purpose, the letters, votes and proceed- 
ings of the City and liberties of the capital. The joy we felt upon 
this interesting occasion may be more easily conceived than ex- 
pressed. Towards evening, a certain Charles Stedman, attorney- 
at-law, came into town, and opened to his host his having certain 
papers tending to the confirmation of the powers of Government in 
the hands of the present Assembly. This good citizen lost no time 
till he made the Committee acquainted with the important dis- 
covery ; orders were thereupon issued forthwith for securing Mr. 
Stedman's portmanteau, and keeping an eye on his person, till he 
might be examined. On our Secretary's application, he readily 
confessed his having three copies of the Remonstrance, issued by 
the party too notoriously the enemies of the rights of freemen to 
find much countenance here. These copies he delivered to the 
Secretary, and then, as well as upon his examination, declared that 
he found them at his father's house, in Philadelphia, and was there 
told they had been left by Mr. Andrew Robinson, with a verbal 
request to carry them to William Maclay, Esquire, at Sunbury. 
Nothing further appearing amongst the packages of Mr. Stedman, 
he was suffered to pass, after he had regained, opened, and read a 
letter he had been seen conveying to one of the prisoner's servants, 
which only discovered his great affection for the worthy family of 
Doctor Kearsley, as he was pleased to style them, and some other 
worthies of the same political complexion. 

Mr. Stedman's departure from town was attended with such cir- 
cumstances as caused two young men, who came with another 
large packet of these treasonable papers, directed to Messrs. John- 
ston & Lukens here, to decamp with precipitation. These carriers 
told the landlord they had received their charge from Doctor Smith 
and Phineas Bond, at Lancaster. 

Our Committee being early assembled, Messrs. Lukens & John- 
ston showed an anonymous letter, directed to them both, request- 
ing them to forward the letters and remonstrances without loss of 
time, and the Evening Posts, and to request their dispatch in pro- 
curing the signing of those papers in their several Districts.' On 
the delivery of the bundle to the Committee, it appeared filled with 
remonstrances and Evening Posts, and sundry sealed letters, one of 
which, directed to Henry Wolfe, of Yorktown, was opened by his 
consent and read, a copy of which is enclosed. 

By this discovery, the Committee judged it proper to retain all 
the other letters till Friday next, when a meeting of the County 
Committee is warned to take all these important matters into con- 
sideration. You may depend upon the event of this meeting to be 
favourable to the cause of liberty, as the sense of the town militia

that not a single dissentient or even cool person appeared in four 
large companies. By order of the Committee. 
I am, gentlemen, your most humble servant, 

JAMES SMITH, Chairman. 

To the Honourable Committee of Inspection and Observation of 
the City and Liberties of Philadelphia. 



IN COMMITTEE FOR YORK COUNTY, May SO, 1776. 

Present : Fifty-five Members. Colonel Robert McPherson in the 
Chair. 

The Resolve of the honourable Continental Congress, of the 15th 
instant, being read, was most cordially agreed to and thankfully 
accepted ; and 

Resolved, That a delegation from this body, of nine members, be 
ordered to attend the Conference of Committees at Philadelphia, 
the 18th day of June next, to consider of the best and most effectual 
measures for carrying into execution and settling the preliminary 
steps for the election of a Provincial Convention, to form a Con- 
stitution founded on " the authority of the people." 

Resolved, That as former Legislative powers of this Province 
cannot act without being under oaths or affirmations to the King 
of Great Britain, and dependent on him, which, by the cruel and 
wicked proceedings of that King and Parliament of Great Britain, 
more especially by a late Act of Parliament declaring the Colonists 
Rebels, and cutting them off from the protection of that Crown, 
the same has become incapable of legislation, and in that respect 
totally extinct ; but 

Resolved, nevertheless, That the Executive powers of Government 
ought to proceed in the usual channel, and that the laws heretofore 
made be put in due execution, until a Government, formed on the 
authority of the people only, takes place, agreeable to the Resolves 
of Congress of the 15th instant. 

Resolved, That Mr. James Rankin, lately chosen a member to 
represent this County in Assembly, in sending seven Letters and 
a bundle of Remonstrances to seven inhabitants of this County, 
for the express purpose of getting those Remonstrances signed by 
the people here, and transmitted to Philadelphia, (which Remon- 
strances can be calculated for no other purpose than to draw this 
Province off from the present union with the other Colonies, or to 
divide the people so as to fall an easy prey to our inveterate ene- 
mies,) has violated the trust reposed in him by the good people of 
this County.

546 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

Besolved That should any person or persons be so lost to all 
sense of duty to the publick as to attempt to procure signers to 
said poisonous and destructive llemonstrance in this county, that 
the said person or persons will be considered as violators of the 
Resolves of Congress, and inimical to the liberties of America.

Michael Probst vs. Michael Ohl. 
Pltiff complained that the Deft, hath reported that the Pltiff- 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 601 

being a Capt. in the Association of this County did take his Asso- 
ciation Book with the list of Subscribers thereunto and producing 
the same in Philadelphia had received a gratification of 2 per cent, 
for every of the subscribers therein. 

Upon hearing the evidence of Col. Geiger and David Deshler, it 
does appear that the Deft, did speak and utter words to that im- 
port ; Therefore, resolved by the Committee, that he the said 
Michael Ohl be repremanded by the Chairman for his low design in 
spreading false reports tending to the disunion of the Associators 
and others in this County. And lie was reproved accordingly, and 
was moreover cautioned to avoid such inflamatory Speeches for the 
future. 

Evidence against Joseph Romich, of Maccongie. 

Jacob Bear says that he, Peter Haas & Jacob Stephen were chosen 
& appointed by the Inhabitants of Maccongie Township, Collectors 
to receive & take the fire Arms from the Non-Associators and 
other disaffected persons in the said Townships ; that when they 
came the first time to the House of the said Joseph Romich for the 
purpose aforesaid, the said Joseph said that he would not deliver 
up his Arms, that they the said Collectors had no right ; and that 
they were Thieves & Robbers and not Christians; that the said 
Collectors went a second time to the house of the said Joseph for 
the purpose afrs'd, and in a calm and discreet manner demanded 
his Anns ; who replied he had Arms but would not deliver them 
up. Whereupon they made a search and found only one Gun which 
belonged to John Kline, who is a lodger with the said Joseph. 


Said 6th June, 1776. 

John Wetzel vs. John Dunkle. 

Evidence of John Haas, who says that last Saturday week, when 
the Company were undjer Arms exercising in Maccongie Township 
he heard John Dunkle of said Township in a conversation say words 
to this effect that John Wetzel being a Committee Man in the 
year 1775, and in that capacity had raised one Rifle Man & Rifle in 
order to join Capt. Miller's Company, then in the Continental Ser- 
vice ; had not only collected the Money out of the said Township 
in order to defray the said Expence, but had also received payments 
for the same from the hands of the Congress ; thereupon Ordered, 
that John Dunkle ask pardon of Mr. Wetzel in the presence of this 
Committee and also that he acknowledge in the presence of the 
Company of that District that the aforesaid words are false & 
groundless. He accordingly ask'd pardon in the presence of this 
Committee and promises to perform the other Injunction. 

Joseph Romich spoke to the same purpose against Mr. Wet/el as 
to his receiving twice for the Rifle Man & Rifle. 



602 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

Resolved, That Capt. Trexler, of Maccongie Township, with a 
sufficient party of his Associators bring Joseph Romich and John 
Romich before the Committee to be held at Easton the 13th 
Instant, at one O'Clock in the afternoon, to answer such matters 
& things as shall be objected against them ; they the said Joseph & 
John having been legally Summoned to appear here this day, paid 
no regard thereunto, and refused absolutely to attend. 



At a Meeting of the Standing Committee, held at Easton the 
13th day of June, 1776, Present, Lewis Gordon, Chairman, Abra- 
ham Berlin, Jonas Hartzel, Cornelius Weygandt, Jesse Jones and 
Robert Matthias. 

Evidence against Michael Ohl for uttering' disrespectfull words 
ayainst the Hon'ble Congress and Assembly. 

Jacob Grenawalt says that in January last, he the said Jacob and 
a certain Martin Buchanan came to Northampton Town on their 
way from Easton, that they put up at the house of Nicholas Fox 
there ; that after they had been there some time Michael Ohl came 
into the said house ; that in a conversatian with the said Michael, 
he the said Jacob said he expected to get an Association Book in 
Easton, but could not get any ; that the said Michael replied he had 
one and that any body might have it that would, for he was sure 

that no body would sign it and that he would in such a 

book that the effect of such discourse was that the Inhabitants of 
Weisenburgh Township would not sign the said Book; and that 
the said Jacob being then a Township Assessor tiid not go round 
to take a list of the said Inhabitants, until he had received a Letter 
from the Commissioners for that purpose and that he did not hear 
the said Michael say anything of the Congress. 

Henry Lawalt says that Michael Ohl in a conversation told him 
that Major Fobst, formerly a Capt. in Weisenburgh Township, did 
take and receive at Philadelphia 20 shil. p'r head for every Sub- 
scriber that had put his name to the printed Book of Association 
in the said Township ; Which words so spoken had a bad effect 
upon the public and restrained many from signing the said Asso- 
ciation ; and-in general set his district in great confusion, and was 
very prejudicial to the general Service of defending the Rights of 
America. 

Col. Geiger informs against Michael Ohl to the same purpose. 

John Feller, of Heidelbergh, informs also to the same purpose. 

After hearing evidence on both sides respecting the conduct & 
behavior of Michael Ohl, it does appear to this Commktee that he 
is highly culpable and blamable in opposing himself to the utmost 
of his power against the salutary Measures of the Honourable 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 603 

House of Assembly for Associating ourselves together in defence 
of the sacred Liberties of America. It is therefore 

Resolved, that he- sign a Recantation now drawn up by this Com- 
mittee and pay all Costs Accrued hereupon, and also that he dis- 
continue a certain Action brought by him against the said Michael 
Pobst in the Court of Common Pleas of this County ; otherwise to 
be published in the Publick Newspapers as an Enemy to the com- 
mon Cause of America. 

Resolved, That the said Recantation when signed be published in 
the English and German Newspapers. 

Whereupon he subscribed the said Recantation accordingly 

" EASTON, June IS, 1776. 

" Whereas, I the subscriber have most imprudently and indis- 
creetly reported and spread abroad throughout the said County, 
that a certain Major Michael Pobst, of the Second Battalion of 
Associators in this County, formerly a Captain in Weisenburgh 
Township, had unjustly received and taken at Philadelphia twenty 
shillings per head for every subscriber to the printed book of Asso- 
ciation in the Township afore-said, by which means many well- 
wishers of the American cause were deterred from signing or 
associating together agreeable to the resolves of the honourable 
House of Assembly ; and being now sensible of my folly and guilt, 
do hereby ask pardon for my offended fellow-citizens, promising in 
future to conduct myself so as to regain their good will and appro- 
bation. 

" MICHAEL OHL." 

Henry Wetzel, Lieutenant in Capt. Trexler's Company, appeared 
in Committee and made report, that in consequence of request of 
this Committee to Capt. Trexler to bring down Joseph Romich 
and John Romich, he the said Henry with four more of the same 
Company went to the Houses of the said Joseph & John to prevail 
upon them to go to Easton to attend this Committee, before they 
would offer any force ; and having acquainted them with the occa- 
sion of their coming, they the said Joseph & John promised to 
attend here this day. And they not now appearing according to 
their promise, it is Ordered by this Committee the said Lieutenant 
Wetzel bring them down by force to attend here the 15th Instant. 

Adjourned to the 15th Instant. 



At a Meeting of the Standing Committee, according to adjourn- 
ment the 15th day of June, 1776, Present, Lewis Gordon. Chair- 
man, Jonas Hartzel, Abraham Berlin, Cornelius Weygandt, and 
Robert Matthias. 

Joseph Romich & John Romich appeared in Committee, and the 
Evidences were examined as follows : 



604 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

Peter Haas informs to the same effect as Jacob Bare did before 
this Committee the 6th Instant. 

Christopher Markle says to the same purpose as Mr. Haas. 

John Markle says, tha he served Joseph Eomich & John Romich 
with a Summons from this Committee to appear at Easton on the 
6th of this Instant ; that John Romich read the Summons and said 
he **** upon it ; that Joseph Romich said they would come if they 
pleased ; & if not, they would stay at home. 

Peter Trexler says, that he was one of the party that went yester- 
day to the House of Joseph Romich in Order to bring him down to 
appear before this Committee ; that when they came there the said 
Joseph Roniicli & John Romich were shut up in a Room in the said 
House ; that this Evidence went to a Window of the said Room 
and desired them to open the Door ; that John Romich replied they 
would, if they would not kill them ; that the said Joseph had a Gun 
in his hand ; that this Evidence desired Joseph to put away the 
Gun and to open the Door, Who replied we are in a passion, we do 
not know what we may do ; some little time after Joseph set the 
Gun behind a Stove in the Room, and opened the Room Door. 

Jacob Kichley says, that they yesterday entered the dwelling 
House of Joseph Romich by lifting up a Latch of the Outer Door 
without any Force; that Capt. Trexler handed the Gun, mentioned 
in Peter Trexler's Evidence, to him, the said Jacob, when he drew 
out the Wad, and found therein five swan shot and powder; that 
the Gun was primed and had a flint. 

Andrew Miller and Leonard Myer say, respectively, that they 
saw Capt. Trexler take a Tomahawk off the Stove before mentioned 
and handed it to Henry Haas. 

Several more Evidences were examined to the same purpose. 

After hearing the Evidence aforesaid and the defence of the said 
Joseph and John Romich respecting their Conduct, It appears to 
this Committee that, they are highly Culpable in opposing the Re- 
solves of the Hon'ble House of Assembly, and in disobeying the 
Summons of this Committee. It is therefore 

Resolved, That unless the said Joseph and John do Voluntarily 
sign a Recantation drawn up by this Committee and pay all Costs 
accruing hereupon, that they be published in the English and Ger- 
man News Papers as Enemies to their Country. 

Whereupon they accordingly Subscribed the said Recantation : 

" EASTON, June 15, 1776 

" We, the subscribers, inhabitants of Maccongie Township, in 
the County of Northampton, do voluntarily acknowledge that we 
were duly waited upon in an orderly, decent and discreet manner, 
by the persons appointed in the said Township, to receive and take 
the arms from the Non-Associators and other disaffected persons, 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 605 

agreeable to the resolves of the honourable House of Assembly ; 
and that we did most imprudently refuse to deliver up the same, 
and also did refuse-to pay any obedience to the summons of the 
Committee of this County, who were therefore obliged to send a 
party of Associators to compel us to answer for our misconduct ; 
and that we did then resist their authority by loaded fire-arms to 
the endangering of their lives. Being now convinced and made 
sensible of our errour, we do humbly ask pardon of our injured and 
incensed countrymen, promising to deliver up our fire-arms imme- 
diately to the persons appointed for that purpose ; and that we will 
in future demean and conduct ourselves in such a manner as to 
recommend us to the friends of American liberty. 

" JOHN ROMICII, 

JOSEPH ROMICII." 
Resolved, That the same be published in the News Papers.

Upon the complaint of Peter Kachlein, Esq., Lieut. Colonel of 
the first Battalion of Associators in this County, representing 
that a certain John Musch of the town of Easton had falsely and 
maliciously calumniated and slandered him by circulating a report 
that the said Peter Kachlein was proffered the quantity of two 
thousand Acres of Land as a Bribe or Reward to use his best 
influence & Interest to keep up & support the Assembly of this 
Province. And the said Peter Kachlein farther represented that 
the Courts of Law being now shut up he could find no redress or 
remedy from thence ; he therefore prayed this Committee to take 
the same into consideration. Whereupon, it is resolved that the par- 
ties & their evidences be heard immediately. And the said parties 
appearing in Committee, the said Peter produced Cornelius Wey- 
gandt (one of the Members of this Committe, who solemnly declared 
that the said John Musch told him that the said Peter was to have 
two thousand Acres of Laud as a Bribe or Reward for his support-

ing & upholding the Assembly of Pennsylvania or words to that 
effect. The Committee then adjourned for farther consideration 
for the space of three hours. And being met again resumed the 
consideration of the aforesaid complaint and upon mature delibera- 
tion are of Opinion that the said John Musch shall sign a writing 
acknowledging his fault for circulating so injurious a report which 
had greatly hurt the Character of the said Peter Kachlein through 
the whole Country, but more especially as an Associator and Officer 
whereby the publick Service is likely to sustain some loss; which 
Paper being drawn up the said John refused to sjgn; and being 
repeatedly afterwards Summoned to appear before this Committee 
he constantly refused to pay any Obedience thereto. Whereupon, 

Itcsolved, That this Committee do hold up the said John Musch 
to this County as a designing, dangerous and refractory person ; 
And the publick are desired to beware of him accordingly. 

Ordered, That the above Transaction be published in the English 
and German Newspapers.

Col. Kachlein having represented to this Board that the 1st Bat- 
talion shall have liberty to recommend a first Lieutenant to March

Appointment of Peter Kachlein to be Lieut. Colo. 

The Committee taking into their consideration the appointment 
of Isaac Sidman by the Standing Committee to be Lieutenant Col- 
onel for the Flying Camp, object against the said appointment for 
this reason to wit : That the said Mr. Sidman is too young and un- 
experienced ; and the whole Committee finding that that said ap- 
pointment was in general disagreeable to the body of the Associa- 
tors ; they to preserve peace, harmony and concord relinquish 
the said appointment and have unanimously now agreed to recom- 
mend Peter Kachlein Esq. Lieut. Colonel of the first Battalion of 
Militia to be Lieut. Colonel of the said Flying Camp (in the room 
of said Mr. Sidman) to be composed partly from the County of 
Bucks and partly from this County; he not losing his Rank or 
.Station in the said Militia. 

The Committee Men of Lynn Township having set forth to this 
Committee that the reason why they have not so generally Associated 
in defence of our Liberties as other Townships have, is because 
they are not pleased and contented with the present Officers, who 
were not originally chosen at a full meeting, and since given great 
occasion of Offence to the Township by their indiscreet behaviour. 
Therefore resolved that the Inhabitants of the said Township 
meet immediately and make a free Election of their Officers, &c. 

A complaint of Job Chillaway was given in to this Committee 
that Isaac Sidman bought a Horse of him for 25, which Job after- 
wards offered him 30 to have him back again, Job being in liquor 
at the time of the Swop. 

It is granted that this Committee will allow JobChilloway 6 Ibs 
of Gun Powder for his family use.

Capt. Arndt vs. Frederick Reeger. 

Capt. John Arndt complains that Frederick Eeeger had said 
that the Capt" hid himself behind an old Barn in the Battle on 
Long Island the 27th August last ; that he had run away from his 
Comp'y at Fort Washington, and that he had sold his Comp'y, to 
prove which assertion the Capt n produced Michael Walter. 

Michael Walter, upon his examination declared, that Frederick 
Reeger told him that if Capt. Arndt came into Easton he should 
not go out as he came in ; that for all he said, Frederick was an old 
Man, he would be revenged on him, and that the Capt u had sold his 
Com'y. 

Elijah Crawford, upon his examination declared, that he being 
one of Capt. Arndt's Comp'y, was with him all the time.duringthe 
Battle on Long Island, and cannot say that the Capt. hid himself 
in any wise during the Engagement or in any manner deserted his 
Comp'y, but that on the contrary that by his good conduct saved 
above twenty of his Comp'y, who would have either been killed or 
taken prisoners. 

John Lyle, being examined, declared, that he was in company 
with Capt. Arndt in Fort Washington the day before the Battle 
there, and that he cros'd the North River with him ; that while in 
the Fort, he did not hear it mentioned that they expected an 
Engagement ; and that the said Lyle was sure, if it had been talked 
of he would have heard it, he having had several acquaintances 
there. 

Upon hearing the above Evidences it appears that the several 
charges laid against Capt. Arndt by Frederick Reeger are false and 
groundless; and that the said Frederick is highly blamable in 
spreading such reports to the prejudice of said Capt n , And there- 
fore Ordered that the said Frederick make acknowledgment to 
Capt. Arndt for his misconduct. 

Said 27th Decmr. 

Elias Long, Christopher Bowman & Frederick Garres, who were 
lately committed to Goal, Petitioned this Committee setting forth

stay at home & not go with the Militia, for the Militia were a going 
to draft & if any of the Signers should be fetched by the Militia 
they would defend themselves & Assist one another ag'st them.

sign'd that paper might have peace. That William Thomas & his 
two Brothers & Samuel Custard were present at the Meeting held

the evening of the 15th December last, Jacob Wertman being in 
Company with him ; W. Thomas asked this examinant to go along

him ; accordingly they went together to said Moser's : in the mean- 
time Wertman went and gave Notice to Daniel Oswald & others 
to attend to said Moser's also; when they came to Philip Moser's, 
Wm. Thomas said to said Jacob he should draw a piece of Writing 
which they would sign in Order to defend themselves against the 
Wyoming People and others who had threatened to come and de- 
stroy their property ; which the s'd Jacob Oswald at first refused 
to do, but however, afterwards consented and the s'd Wm. Thomas

prisoner. 

Philip Moser says, that it was strongly reported that some of the 
Militia under Colo. Geiger and some from Wyoming would come 
and take away all their clothing, and for that reason they had made 
the Writings in order to defend themselves ; that Philip Anthony 
had been up at Wyoming and had told the people there that he the 
said Moser was a great Tory and that they should come down and 
destroy his Effects.

ventory thereof now produced, into Committee, appears ; that some 
time after the said Thomas enlisted into the Continental Service, 
where he continued for the space of 20 Months; that upon his re- 
turn from the Service he came to the house of the said Faas where 
he lay sometime sick ; that after he got better he made enquiry 
after his Clothes, &c., which he had left there; but could get no 
satisfaction whatsoever as Faas would not so much as let him go to 
his Chest. The Pltff. declares that he saw one of Faas' Daughters 
wear a handkerchief which belonged to him & which he took off 
her neck ; and that he can testify by several who saw his Clothes 
wore by some of Faas' family especially his Shirts. 

George Faas, upon his examination confesses, that he hath sev- 
eral of the Pltiff's Effects and Wearing Apparel in his Possession 
which he detains for security of a Debt due to him from the said 
Thomas during his sickness ; but cannot say, whether all the Goods 
mentioned in the said Inventory were left in his house or not, hav- 
ing never examined into the same ; however, said Faas acknowl- 
edges two pair of stockings, one pair of Shirt sieves & one pair of 
Butts the property of the s'd Thomas to have been taken by some

Evidence against William Johnston. 

Daniel Smoak saith, that about the 6th of this Instant, being 
then in Company with William Johnston of Mount Bethel Town- 
ship, at the house of John Cunningham in Sussex County, New 
Jersey, he heard the said William express himself as follows : that 
it had been threatened to put him the sd. William into Goal ; but 
that he did not care, for he would not remain long there ; that 
16,000 Tories had already joined the Regulars but that he the s'd 
William would not meddle nor make 'till they would seize his 
Goods and then he wou'd defend himself; that Christopher Ensley 
of Sussex County afs'd would be revenged on all those that bought 
Goods at the Yendue of his Effects ; that Ensley was on Prospect 
hill at the time of the Yendue and saw what passed. 

John Scott saith, that about the 2d Instant the said William John- 
ston came to his house, and, in a conversation with said Scott, told 
him that our present War was a papish Rebellion and a Cromwell's 
Rebellion ; for the Crom wells were always in Rebellion. 

Thomas Sillyman s^ith, that sometime ago in a conversation with 
the said William Johnston, Johnston told him that James Stewart 
and Joseph Lowry were a going down to the Regulars with a small 
party ; and that if the said William was not so engaged in distill- 
ing he would go along with them. 

Daniel Smoak represented to the Committee that he had become 
Security before Anthony Moore & Nathaniel Britain two of the 
Members of the Committee for the said William Johnston's appear- 
ance here this day to answer unto such matters & things as should 
be objected against bis annual place of abode; and that since his

of abode, and made his escape out of this State, praying for some 
relief in the Premises; Whereupon it is agreed by the Committee 
that an Order be granted to the said Daniel Smoak to seize the

OF THE 



COUNTY OF WESTMORELAND. 



COUNTY LIEUTENANTS. 



Archibald Lochry, ... . March 21, 1777. 

Edward Cook, '. June 5, 1782. 

Charles Campbell. 



THE WESTMORELAND RESOLVES. 



[The Records of the " Committee of Inspection " for the County 
of Westmoreland are not to our knowledge in existence, having 
probably been destroyed in the Burning of Hannastown, in July, 
1782. These patriotic Eesolves, however, have been preserved 
owing to the fact that they appeared in the Philadelphia news- 
papers of the. day, as the sentiment of the brave and undaunted 
frontiersmen in Western Pennsylvania.] 



At a general meeting of the inhabitants of the County of West- 
moreland, held at Hanna's Town the 16th day of May, 1775, for 
taking into consideration the very alarming situation of this 
Country, occasioned by the dispute with Great Britain : 

Resolved unanimously, That the Parliament of Great Britain, by 
several late Acts, have declared the inhabitants of the Massachu- 
setts-Bay to be in rebellion, and the Ministry, by endeavoring to 
enforce those Acts, have attempted to reduce the said inhabitants 
to a more wretched state of slavery than ever before existed in any 
state or country. Not content with violating their constitutional 
and chartered privileges, they would strip them of the rights of 
humanity, exposing lives to the wanton and unpunishable sport of 
a licentious soldiery, and depriving them of the very means of sub- 
sistence. 

Resolved unanimously, That there is no reason to doubt but the 
same system of tyranny and oppression will (Should it meet with 
success in the Massachusetts-Bay) be extended to every other part 
of America ; it is therefore become the indispensible duty of every 
American, of every man who has any publick virtue or love for his 
Country, or any compassion for posterity, by every means which God 
has put in his power, to resist and oppose the execution of it ; that 
for us we will be ready to oppose it with our lives and fortunes. 
And the better to enable us to accomplish it, we will immediately 
form ourselves into a military body, to consist of companies to be 
made up out of the several Townships under the following Asso- 
ciation, which is declared to be the Association of Westmoreland 
County. 

43 VOL. XIV. (673) 



674 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

Possessed with the most unshaken loyalty and fidelity to His 
Majesty, King George the Third, whom we acknowledge to be our 
lawful and rightful King, and who we wish may long be the beloved 
Sovereign of a free and happy people throughout the whole British 
Empire; we declare to the world, that we do not mean by this 
Association to deviate from that loyalty which we hold it our 
bounden duty to observe; but animated with the love of liberty, it 
is no less our duty to maintain and defend our just rights (which, 
with sorrow, we have seen of late wantonly violated in many 
instances by a wicked Ministry and a corrupted Parliament), and 
transmit them entire to our posterity, for which purpose we do 
agree and associate together. 

1st. To arm and form ourselves into a Regiment or Regiments, 
and choose officers to command us in such proportion as shall be 
thought necessary, 

2d. We will, with alacrity, endeavour to make ourselves masters 
of the manual exercise, and such evolutions as may be necessary to 
enable us to act in a body with concert ; and to that end we will 
meet at such times and places as shall be appointed either for the 
Companies or the Regiment, by the Officers commanding each 
when chosen. 

3d. That should our Country be invaded by a foreign enemy, or 
should troops be sent from Great Britain to enforce the late 
arbitrary Acts of its Parliament, we will cheerfully submit to 
military discipline, and to the utmost of our power resist and oppose 
them, or either of them, and will coincide with any plan that may 
be formed for the defence of America in general, or Pennsylvania 
in particular. 

4th. That we do not wish or desire any innovation, but only that 
things may be restored to, and go on in the same way as before the 
era of the Starjp Act, when Boston grew great, and America was 
happy. As a proof of this disposition, we will quietly submit to 
the laws by which we have been accustomed to be governed before 
that period, and will, in our several or associate capacities, be 
ready when called on to assist the civil magistrate in carrying the 
same into execution. 

5th. That when the British Parliament shall have repealed their 
late obnoxious Statutes, and shall recede from their claim to tax 
us, and make laws for us in every instance, or when some general 
plan of union and reconciliation has been formed and accepted by 
America, this our Association shall be dissolved ; but till then it 
shall remain in full force; and to the observation of it, we bind 
ourselves by everything dear and sacred amongst men. 

No licensed murder I No famine introduced by lawj 

Itesolved, That on Wednesday, the twenty-fourth instant, the 
Township meet to accede to the said Association, and choose their 
officers.

LOCHRY S EXPEDITION. 



[In the summer of 1781, Colonel Archibald Lochry, Lieutenant 
of Westmoreland county, raised several companies of volunteers, 
of which he was chosen Commander, for the purpose of joining the 
force of Col. George Rogers Clark on an expedition against the 
Shawanese and other Indian towns in Ohio, with scout designs 



682 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

against the British post at Detroit. The party of one hundred and 
seven mounted volunteers rendezvoused at Carnahan's Block 
House, eleven miles west of Hanna's Town, on the 24th of July, 1781. 
They began their march on the 2d of August, by way of Fort Pitt 
to Fort Henry (Wheeling), where they arrived on the 8th, about 
twelve hours after Col. Clark with all the men, boats and stores he 
could gather had departed, leaving orders for Col. Lochry to 
follow and overtake him at the mouth of Little Kanawha. Several 
days were consumed by Col. Lochry in getting started. In the 
meantime Clark's men began to desert ; and Lochry apprehended 
Lieutenant Baker and sixteen men who were deserting from Clark 
at Fishing Creek. To prevent desertion Col. Clark was obliged to 
proceed from the Kanawha, leaving a letter affixed to a pole direct- 
ing Lochry to follow to the Falls of the Ohio. Lochry's 
stores and forage gave out at this point and he detached Capt. 
Shannon with seven men in a small boat to overtake Clark and 
secure supplies. This detachment had not proceeded far when the 
Indians, who were carefully watching the expedition, captured 
Shannon and all of his men but two and also obtained a letter to 
Col. Clark detailing Lochry's situation. Joseph Brandt, with 
one hundred Indian warriors, lay in wait to attack Clark at the 
mouth of the Miami River, but Clark passed in the night, and the 
Indians being afraid of the cannon and the number of men, did 
not molest him, but concluded to wait for Lochry's party. It is 
said that the Indians placed the prisoners they had taken in a con- 
spicuous position on the north shore of the Ohio River and promised 
to spare their lives on condition that they would hail Lochry's 
party and induce them to land and surrender. However this may 
have been, at about 10 o'clock on August 24th, Lochry having 
reached an attractive spot about ten miles below the mouth of the 
Big Miami, near the present town of Aurora, Dearborn County, 
Indiana, landed on the north side of the Ohio River in the mouth 
of a creek which has since been called Lochry's Creek. The 
Ohio River was very low and a large sandbar extended from the 
south almost across to the north bank of the river. Col. Lochry's 
party, weaned with their slow and laborious progress and discour- 
aged by the failure to overtake Clark's army, removed their horses 
ashore and turned them loose to feed while some of the men cut 
grass sufficient to keep them alive until they should reach the Falls. 
A buffalo had been killed and all were engaged in preparing a meal, 
when the Indians appeared on both sides of the river, and began 
firing from the woods. The soldiers seized, their arms and made a 
defense as long as their ammunition held out. An attempt was 
made to escape by the boats, but they were so unwieldy and the 
water so low that the Indians cut them off. Unable to escape or 
defend themselves, Col. Lochry surrendered. Brant, the Indian 



AND MILITIA OF THE RESOLUTION. 683 

Chief, says thirty-six, including five officers, were killed and sixty- 
four made prisoners. One or two escaped, but did not reach home 
for several months afterward. Lochry was tomahawked by a 
Shawanese Indian after the battle while sitting on a log, and all the 
wounded who were unable to march were similarly dispatched. 
The prisoners were marched eight miles up the Miami River, sub- 
sequently taken to Detroit, and sent from there to Montreal. Of 
the officers and men, we have the names of only a few, those here- 
with given.]

fire, which they supposed to be Indians firing on the rest of the 
party, and they immediately took up the river to meet us ; but un- 
fortunately the sergeant's knife dropped on the ground and it ran

THE SANDL>KY EXPEDITION. 



[It is not the intention of the Editor to present an account of 
the unfortunate expedition of Col. Crawford to Sandusky. The 
narratives of Knight and Slover, which follow these lists of volun- 
teers, are sufficient for the general reader. Of the men who went 
upon the expedition, we have the rolls of sixteen of the eighteen 
detachments of companies. About two-thirds of the troops were 
from Washington county, and with possibly the exception of one 
company, the rest were from Westmoreland county, under which we 
place the entire force. That these portions of companies were 
upon that service we fully believe, being borne out by the fact that 
all contained certificates similar to the one re-produced in facsimile 
on the opposite page. The most reliable work on Crawford's 
Expedition against Sandusky is that by Consul \Vilshire Butter- 
tield, published at Cincinnati in 1873.]

NARRATIVES OF THE EXPEDITION. 



[The following narratives of two of the survivors of Crawford's 
Expedition to Sandusky were given to the public shortly after the 
return of the narrators. It is deemed perfectly proper to reproduce 
them in connection with the preceding. That of Dr. Knight was 
written by himself , that of Slover as related by him was taken 
down by H. Brackenridge.] 



NARRATIVE OF DR. KNIGHT. 



About the latter end of the month of March or the beginning of 
April, of the present year (1782), the western Indians began to make 
incursions upon the frontiers of Ohio and Washington, Yough- 
iogany and Westmoreland counties, which has been their constant 
practice ever since the commencement of the present war between 
the United States and Great Britain. 

In consequence of these predatory invasions, the principal officers 
of the above mentioned counties, namely : Colonels Williamson and 
Marshall, tried every method in their power to set on foot an ex- 
pedition against the Wyandot towns, which they could effect no 
other way than by giving all possible encouragement to volunteers. 
The plan proposed was as follows: Every man furnishing himself 
with a horse, a gun, and one month's provisions, should be exempt 
from two tours of militia duty. Likewise, that every one who had 
been plundered by the Indians, should, if the plunder could be 
found at their towns, have it again, proving it to be fiis property, 
and all horses lost on the expedition by unavoidable accident were 
to be replaced by horses taken in the enemy's country. 



AND MIIJTIA OF THE BE VOLUTION. 709 

The time appointed for the rendezvous, or the general meeting of 
the volunteers, was fixed to be on the lOth of May, and the place, 
the old Mingo town, on the west side of the river Ohio, about forty 
miles below Fort Pitt, by land ; and I think about seventy-five by 
water. 

Col. Crawford was solicited by the general voice of these western 
counties and districts to command the expedition. He accordingly 
set out as a volunteer, and came to Fort Pitt two days before the 
time appointed for the assembling of the men. As there was no 
Surgeon yet appointed to go with the expedition, Col. Crawford 
begged the favor of Gen. Irvine to permit me to accompany him, 
(my consent having been previously asked,) to which the General 
agreed, provided Col. Gibson did not object. 

Having obtained permission of the Col., I left Fort Pitt on 
Tuesday, May 1st, and the next day about one in the afternoon, 
arrived at the Mingo bottom. 

The volunteers had not all crossed the river until Friday morn- 
ing, the 24th, they then distributed themselves into eighteen com- 
panies, choosing their captains by vote. There were chosen also, 
one Col. Commandant, four field and one brigadier Major. There 
were four hundred and sixty-five that voted. 

We began our march on Saturday, May 25th, making almost a 
due West course, and on the fourth day reach the old Moravian 
town, upon the river Muskingum, about 60 miles from the river 
Ohio. Some of the men having lost their horses on the night pre- 
ceding, returned home. 

Thursday, the 28th, in the evening, Major Brinton and Captain 
Bane, went some distance from camp to reconnoitre ; having gone 
about one-quarter of a mile they saw two Indians, upon whom they 
fired, and then retreated to camp. Tlr.s was the first place in which 
we were discovered, as we understood afterwards. 

On Thursday, the 4th of June, which was the eleventh day 
of our march, about one o'clock we came to the spot where the town, 
of Sand usky formerly stood; the inhabitants had moved 18 miles 
lower down the creek nearer the lower Sandusky; but as neither 
our guides or any who were with us had known any thing of their 
removal, we began to conjecture there were no Indian towns 
nearer than the lower Sandusky, which was at least forty miles 
distant. 

However, after refreshing our horses we advanced in search of 
some of their settlements, but had scarcely got the distance of three 
or four miles from the old town when a number of our men ex- 
pressed their desire to return, some of them alleging that they had 
only five days' provisions; upon which the field Officers and Cap- 
tains, determined in council, to proceed that afternoon and no 



710 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

longer. Previous to the calling of this council, a small party of 
light horse had been sent forward to reconnoitre. 

I shall here remark by the way, that there are a great many 
extensive plains in that country. The woods in general grow very 
thin, and free from brush and underwood ; so that light horsemen 
may advance a considerable distance before an army without being 
much exposed to the enemy. 

Just as the council decided, an express returned from the above 
mentioned party of light horse with intelligence that they had been 
about three miles in front, and had seen a large body of Indians 
running towards them. In a short time we saw the rest of the 
light horse, who joined us, and having gone one mile further, met 
a number of Indians who had partly got possession of a piece of 
woods before us, whilst we were in the plains ; but our men alight- 
ing from their horses and rushing into the woods, soon obliged 
them to abandon that place. 

The enemy being by this time reinforced, flanked to the right, 
and part of them coming in nearer, quickly made the action more 
serious. The firing continued very warm on both sides from four 
o'clock until the dusk of the evening, each party maintaining their 
ground. Next morning, about six o'clock, their guns were dis- 
charged, at the distance of two or three hundred yards, which con- 
tinued till day, doing little or no execution on either side. 

The field oflicers then assembled and agreed, as the enemy were 
every moment increasing, and we had already a number of wounded, 
to retreat that night. The whole body was to form into three 
lines, keeping the wounded in the centre. We had four killed and 
twenty-three wounded, of the latter, seven very dangerously, on 
which account as many biers were got ready to carry them ; most 
of the rest were slightly wounded and none so bad but they could 
ride on horseback. After dark the officers went on the out-posts 
and brought in all the men as expeditiously as they could. Just 
as the troops were about to form, several guns were fired by the 
enemy, upon which some of our men spoke out and said our inten- 
tion was discovered by the Indians who were firing alarm guns. 
Upon which some in front hurried off and the rest immediately 
followed, leaving the seven men that were dangerously wounded, 
some of whom however got off on horseback, by means of some 
good friends, who waited for, and assisted them. 

We had not got a quarter of a mile from the field of action when 
I heard Col. Crawford calling for his son, John Crawford, his son- 
in-law, Major Harrison, Major Rose and William Crawford, his 
nephews, upon which I came up and told him I believed they 
were on before us. He asked was that the doctor ? I told him it 
was. He then replied they were not in front, and begged of me 
not to leave him. I promised him I would not. 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 711 

We then waited and continued calling for these men till the 
troops had passed us. The Colonel told me his horse had almost 
given out, that he could not keep up with the troops, N and wished 
some of his best friends to remain with him. He then exclaimed 
against the militia for riding off in such an irregular manner, and 
leaving some of the wounded behind, contrary to his orders. 
Presently there came two men riding after us, one of them an old 
man, the other a lad. We enquired if they had seen any of the 
above persons ? They answered they had not. 

By this time there was very hot firing before us, and as we judged, 
near where our main body must have been. Our course was then 
nearly Southwest, but changing it, we went north about two miles, 
the two men remaining in company with us. Judging ourselves 
to be now out of the enemy's lines, we took a due East course, 
taking care to keep at the distance of fifteen or twenty yards apart, 
and directing ourselves by the North star. 

The old man often lagged behind, and when this was the case, 
never failed to call for us to halt for him. When we were near the 
Sandusky creek he fell one hundred yards behind, and bawled out, 
as usual, for us to halt. While we were preparing to reprimand 
him for making a noise, I heard an Indian hallo, as I thought, one 
hundred and fifty yards from the man, and partly behind him. 
After this we did not hear the man call again, neither did he ever 
come up to us any more. It was now past midnight, and about day- 
break Col. Crawford's and the young man's horses gave out, and 
they left them. We pursued our journey Eastward, and about two 
o'clock fell in with Capt. Biggs, who had carried Lieut. Ashley 
from the field of action, who had been dangerously wounded. We 
then went on about the space of an hour, when a heavy rain com- 
ing on, we concluded it was best to encamp, as we were encum- 
bered with the wounded officer. We then barked four or five trees, 
made an encampment and a fire, and remained there all that night. 
Next morning we again prosecuted our jaurney, and having gone 
about three miles found a deer which had been recently killed. The 
meat was sliced from the bones and bundled up in the skin, with a 
tomahawk lying by it. We carried all with us, and in advancing 
about one mile further, espied the smoke of a fire. We then gave 
the wounded officer into the charge of the young man, directing 
him to stay behind whilst the Colonel, the Captain and myself 
walked up as cautiously as we could toward the fire. When we 
came to it, we concluded, from several circumstances, some of our 
people had encamped there the preceding night. We then went 
about roasting the venison, and when just about to march, observed 
one of our men coming upon our tracks. He seemed at first very 
shy, but having called to him, he came up and told us he was the 
person who had killed the deer, but upon hearing us come up, was 



712 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

afraid of Indians, hid it in a thicket and made off. Upon this we 
gave him some bread and roasted venison, proceeded all together 
on our journey, and about twoo'clock came upon the paths by which 
we had gone out. Uapt. Biggs and myself did not think it safe to 
keep the road, but the Colonel said the Indians would not follow 
the troops farther than the plains, which we were then considerably 
past. As the wounded officer rode Capt. Biggs' horse, I lent the 
Captain mine. The Colonel and myself went about one hundred 
yards in front, the Captain and the wounded officer in the centre, 
and the two young men behind. After we had traveled about one 
mile and a half, several Indians started up within fifteen or twenty 
steps of the Colonel and me. As we at first discovered only three, 
I immediately got behind a large black oak, made ready my piece 
and raised it up to take sight, when the Colonel called to me twice 
not to fire, upon that one of the Indians ran up to the Colonel and 
took him by the hand. 

They were Delaware Indians of the Wingenund tribe. Captain 
Biggs fired amongst them but did no execution. They then told 
us to call these people and make them come there, else they would 
go and kill them, which the Colonel did, but they forgot us and 
escaped for that time. The Colonel and I were then taken to the 
Indian camp, which was about half a mile from the place where we 
were captured. On Sunday evening five Delawares who had posted 
themselves at some distance further on the road brought back to 
the camp, where we lay, Captain Biggs' and Lieutenant Ashley's 
scalps, with an Indian scalp which Captain Biggs had taken in the 
field of action ; they also brought in Biggs' horse and mine, they 
told us the other two men got away from them. 

Monday morning, the tenth of June, we were paraded to march 
to Sandusky, about thirty-three miles distant ; they had eleven 
prisoners of us and four scalps, the Indians being seventeen in 
number. 

Col. Crawford was very desirous to see a certain Simon Girty, 
who lived with the Indians, and was on this account permitted to 
go to town the same night, with two warriors to guard him, hav- 
ing orders at the same time to pass by the place where the Col. had 
turned out his horse, that they might if possible, find him. The 
rest of us were taken as far as the old town which was within 
eight miles of the new. 

Tuesday morning, the eleventh, Col. Crawford was brought out 
to us on purpose to be marched in with the other prisoners. I 
asked the Col. if he had seen Mr. Girty ? He told me he had, and 
that Girty had promised to do every thing in, his power for him, 
but that the Indians were very much enraged against the prisoners ; 
particularly Captain Pipe one of the chiefs; he likewise told me 
tiiat Girty had informed him that his son-in-law, Col. Harrison and

his nephew, William Crawford, were made prisoners by the Shaw- 
anese, but had been pardoned. This Captain Pipe had come from 
the town about an hour before Col. Crawford, and had painted all 
the prisoners' faces black. As he was painting me he told me I 
should go to the Shawanese towns and see my friends. When the 
Col. arrived he painted him black also, told him he was glad to see 
him and that he would have him shaved when he came to see his 
friends at the Wyandot town. When we marched the Col. and I 
were kept back between Pipe and Wingenund, the two Delaware 
chiefs, the other nine prisoners were sent forward with another 
party of Indians. As we went along we saw four of the prisoners 
lying by the path tomahawked and scalped, some of them were at 
the distance of half a mile from each other. When we arrived 
within half a mile of the place where the Col. was executed, we 
overtook the five prisoners that remained alive ; the Indians had 
caused them to sit down on the ground, as they did also the Col. 
and me at some distance from them. I was there given in charge 
to an Indian fellow to be taken to the Shawanese towns. 

In the place where we were now made to sit down there was a 
number of squaws and boys, who fell on the five prisoners and 
tomahawked them. There was a certain John McKinly amongst 
the prisoners, formerly an officer in the 13th Virginia regiment, 
whose head an old squaw cut off, and the Indians kicked it about 
upon the ground. The 3'oung Indian fellows came of ten where the 
Col. and I were, and dashed the scalps in our faces. We were then 
conducted along toward the place where the Col. was afterwards 
executed ; when we came within about half a mile of it, Simon 
Girty met UP, with several Indians on horseback ; he spoke to the 
Col., but as I was about one hundred and fifty yards behind could 
not hear what passed between them. 

Almost every Indian we met struck us either with sticks or their 
fists. Girty waited till I was brought up and asked, was that the 
doctor? I told him yes, and went toward him reaching out my 
hand, but he bid me begone and called me a damned rascal, upon 
which the fellows who had me in charge pulled me along. Girty 
rode up after me and told me I was to go to the Shawanese towns. 

When we went to the fire the Col. was stripped naked, ordered 
to sit down by the fire and then they beat him witli sticks and their 
fists. Presently after I was treated in the same manner. They 
then tied a rope to the foot of a post about fifteen feet high, bound 
the Col's hands behind his back and fastened the rope to the liga- 
ture between his wrists. The rope was long enough for him to sit 
down or walk around the post once or twice and return the same 
way. The Col. then called to Girty and asked if they intended to 
burn him ? Girty answered, yes. The Col. said he would take it 
all patiently. Upon this Captain Pipe, a Delaware chief, made a 



714 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

speech to the Indians, viz: about thirty or forty men, sixty or 
seventy squaws and boys. 

When the speech was finished they all yelled a hideous and hearty 
assent to what had been said. The Indian men then took up their 
guns and shot powder into the Colonel's body, from his feet as far 
up as his neck. I think not less than seventy loads were discharged 
upon his naked body. Then they crowded about him, and to the 
best of my observation, cut off his ears; when the throng had dis- 
persed a little I saw the blood running from both sides of his head 
in consequence thereof. 

The fire was about six or seven yards from the post to which the 
Colonel was tied ; it was made of small hickory poles, burnt quite 
through in the middle, each end of the poles remaining about six feet 
in length. Three or four Indians by turns would take up, individ- 
ually, one of these burning pieces of wood and apply it to his naked 
body, already burnt black with powder. These tormentors presented 
themselves on every side of him with the burning faggots and 
poles. Some of the squaws took broad boards, upon which they 
would carry a quantity of burning coals and hot embers and throw 
on him, so that in a short time he had nothing but coals of tire and 
hot ashes to walk upon. 

In the midst of these extreme tortures, he called to Simon Girty 
and begged of him to shoot him ; but Girty making no answer he 
called to him again. Girty then, by way of derision, told the Colo- 
nel he had no gun, at the same time turning about to an Indian 
who was behind him, laughed heartily, and by all his gestures 
seemed delighted at the horrid scene. 

Girty then came up to me and bade me prepare for death. 'He 
said, however, I was not to die at that place, but to be burnt at the 
Shawanese towns. He swore by G d I need not expect to escape 
death, but should suffer it in all its extremities. 

He then observed, that some prisoners had given him to under- 
stand, that if our people had had him they would not hurt him; for 
his part, he said, he did not believe it, but desired to know my 
opinion of the matter, but being at that time in great anguish and 
distress for the torments the Colonel was suffering before my eyes, 
as well as the expectation of undergoing the same fate in tw r o days, 
I made little or no answer. He expressed a great deal of ill will 
for Col. Gibson, and said he was one of his greatest enemies, and 
more to the same purpose, to all which I paid very little attention. 

Col. Crawford at this period of his sufferings besought the 
Almighty to have mercy on his soul, spoke very low, and bore his 
torments with the most manly fortitude. He continued in all the 
extremities of pain for an hour and three quarters or two hours 
longer, as near as I can judge, when at last, being almost exhausted, 
he lay down on his belly ; they then scalped him and repeatedly 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 715 

threw the scalp in my face, telling me " that was my great cap- 
tain." An old squaw (whose appearance every way answered the 
ideas people entertain of the Devil) got a board, took a parcel of 
coals and ashes and laid them on his back and head, after he had 
been scalped, he then raised himself upon his feet and began to 
walk around the post ; they next put a burning stick to him as 
usual, but he seemed more insensible of pain than before. 

The Indian fellow who had me in charge, now took me away to 
Capt. Pipe's house, about three-quarters of a mile from the place of 
the Colonel's execution. I was bound all night, and thus prevented 
from seeing the last of the horrid spectacle. Next morning, being 
June 12th, the Indian untied me, painted me black, and we set off 
for the Shawanese town, which he told me was somewhat less than 
forty rnibs from that place. We soon came to the spot where the 
Colonel had been burnt, as it was partly in our way ; I saw his 
bones lying amongst the remains of the fire, almost burnt to ashes ; 
I suppose after he was dead they had laid his body on the fire. 

The Indian told me that was my Big Captain, and gave the scalp 
halloo. He was on horseback and drove me before him. 

I pretended to this Indian I was ignorant of the death I was to 
die at the Shawanese towns, assumed as cheerful a countenance as 
possible, and asked him if we were not to live together as brothers 
in one house when we should get to the town ? He seemed well 
pleased, and said yes. He then asked me if I could make a wig- 
wam ? I told him I could he then seemed more friendly. We 
went that day as near as I can judge about 25 miles, the course 
partly Southwest. -The Indian told me we should next day come 
to the town, the sun being in such a direction, pointing nearly 
South. At night, when we went to rest, I attempted very often to 
untie myself, but the Indian was extremely vigilant and scarcely 
ever shut his eyes that night. About daybreak he got up and un- 
tied me ; he next began to mend up the fire, and as the gnats were 
troublesome I asked him if I should make a smoke behind him he 
said yes. I then took the end of a dogwood fork which had been 
burnt down to about 18 inches long ; it was the longest stick I 
could find, yet too small for the purpose I had in view ; then I 
picked up another smaller stick and taking a coal of fire between 
them went behind him ; then turning suddenly about, I struck him 
on the head with all the force I was master of ; which so stunned 
him that he fell forward with both his hands into the fire, but see- 
ing him recover and get up, I seized his gun while he ran off howl- 
ing in a most fearful manner. I followed him with a determination 
to shoot him down, but pulling back the cock of the gun with too 
great violence, I believe I broke the main spring. I pursued him, 
however, about thirty yards, still endeavoring to fire the gun, but 
could not ; then going back to the fire I took his blanket, a pair of new 



716 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

moccasins, his hoppes, powder horn, bullet bag, (together with the 
gun) and marched off, directing my course toward the five o'clock 
mark; about half an hour before sunset I came to the plains which 
I think are about sixteen miles wide. I laid me down in a thicket 
till dark, and then by the assistance of the North star made my way 
through them and got into the woods before morning. I proceeded 
on the next day, and about noon crossed the paths by which our 
troops had gone out ; these paths are nearly East and West, but I 
went due North all that afternoon with a view to avoid the enemy. 
In the evening I began to be very faint, and no wonder; I had 
been six days prisoner; the last two days of which I had eat noth- 
ing, and but very little the first three or four; there were wild 
gooseberries in abundance in the woods, but being unripe, required 
mastication, which at that time I was not able to perform on 
account of a blow received from an Indian on the jaw with the 
back of a tomahawk. There was a weed that grew plentifully in 
that place, the juice of which I knew to be grateful and nourish- 
ing; I gathered a bundle of the same, took up my lodging under a 
large spreading beech tree and having sucked plentifully of the 
juice, went to sleep. Next day, I made a due East course which I 
generally kept the rest of my journey. I often imagined my gun 
was only wood bound, and tried every method I could devise to 
unscrew the lock but never could effect it, having no knife nor any 
thing fitting for the purpose, I had now the satisfaction to find my jaw 
began to mend, and in four or five days could chew any vegetable 
proper for nourishment, but finding my gun only a useless burden, 
left it in the wilderness. I had no apparatus for making fire to 
sleep by, so that I could get but little rest for the gnats and mus- 
ketoes; there are likewise a great many swamps in the beech ridge* 
which occasioned me very often to lie wet ; this ridge, through which 
I traveled, is about 20 miles broad, the ground in general very level 
and rich, free from shrubs and brush ; there are, however, very few 
springs, yet wells might easily be dug in all parts of the ridge ; the 
timber on it is very lofty, but it is no easy matter to make a 
straight course through the same, the moss growing as high upon 
the South side of the trees as upon the North. There are a great 
many white oaks, ash and hickory trees that grow among the beech 
timber ; there are likewise some places on the ridge, perhaps for 
thiee or four continued miles where there is little or no beech, and 
in such spots, black, white oak, ash and hickory abound. Sugar 
trees grow there also to a very great bulk the soil is remarkably 
good, the ground a little ascending and descending with some small 
rivulets and a few springs. When I got out of the beech ridge and 
nearer the river Muskingum, the lands were more broken but 
equally rich with those before mentioned, and abounding with 
brooks and springs of water; there are also several small creeks 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 717 

that empty into that river, the bed of which is more than a mile 
wide in many places; the woods consist of white and black oak, 
walnut, hickory and sugar trees in the greatest abundance. In all 
parts of the country through which I came the game was very 
. plenty, that is to say, deer, turkeys and pheasants ; I likewise saw 
a great many vestiges of bears and some elks. 

I crossed the river Muskingum about three or four miles below 
Fort Lawrence, and crossing all paths aimed for the Ohio river. 
All this time rny food was gooseberries, young nettles, the juice of 
herbs, a few service berries, and some May apples, likewise two 
young blackbirds and a terrapin, which I devoured raw. When 
my food sat heavy on my stomach, L used to eat a little wild ginger 
which put all to rights. 

I came upon the Ohio river about five miles below Fort Mclntosh, 
in the evening of the 21st day after I had made my escape, and on 
the 22d about seven o'clock in the morning, being the fourth day 
of July, arrived safe, though very much fatigued, at the Fort. 



NARRATIVE OF JOHN SLOVER. 



Having in the last war been a prisoner amongst the Indians 
many years, and so being well acquainted with the country west of 
the Ohio, I was employed as a guide in the expedition under Col. 
William Crawford against the Indian towns on or near the river 
Sandusky. It will be unnecessary for me to relate what is so well 
known, the circumstances and unfortunate events of that expedi- 
tion ; it will be sufficient to observe, that having on Tuesday the 
fourth of June, fought the enemy near Sandusky, we lay that night 
in our camp, and the next day fired on each other at the distance of 
three hundred yards, doing little or no execution. In the evening 
of that day it was proposed by Col. Crawford, as I have since been 
informed, to draw off with order ; but at the moment of our retreat 
the Indians (who had probably perceived that we were about to 
retreat) firing alarm guns, our men broke and rode off in confusion, 
treading down those who were on foot, and leaving the wounded 
men who supplicated to be taken with them. 

I was with some others on the rear of our troops feeding our 
horses in the glade, when our men began to break. The main body 
of our people had passed y me a considerable distance before I was 
ready to set out. I overtook them before they crossed the glade, 
and was advanced almost in front. The company in which I was 
had separated from me, and had endeavored to pass a morass, for 



718 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

coming up I found their horses had stuck fast in the morass, and 
endeavoring to pass, mine also in a short time stuck fast. I ought 
to have said, the company of five or six men with which I had been 
immediately connected, and who were some distance to the right of 
the main body, had separated from me, &c. I tried a long time to 
disengage my horse, until I could hear the enemy just behind me, 
and on each side, but in vain. Here then I was obliged to leave 
him. The morass was. so unstable that I was to the middle in it, 
and it was with the greatest difficulty that I got across it, but 
which having at length done, I came up with the six men who had 
left their horses in the same manner I had done ; two of these, my 
companions, having lost their guns. 

We traveled that night, making our course towards Detroit, with 
a view to shun the enemy, who we conceived to have taken the 
paths by which the main body of our people had retreated. Just 
before day we got into a second deep morass, and were under the 
necessity of delaying until it was light to see our way through it. 
The whole of this day we traveled towards the Shawanese towns, 
with a view of throwing ourselves still farther out of the search of 
the enemy. About ten o'clock this day we sat down to eat a little, 
having tasted nothing from Tuesday, the day of our engagement, 
until this time which was on Thursday, and now the only thing we 
had to eat was a scrap of pork to each. We had sat down by a 
warrior's path which we had not suspected, when eight or nine 
warriors appeared. Running off hastily we left our baggage and 
provision, but were not discovered by the party; for skulking 
some time in the grass and bushes, we returned to the place and 
recovered our baggage. The warriors had halooed as they passed, 
and were answered by others on our flanks. 

In our journey through the glades, or wide extended dry mead- 
ows, about twelve o'clock this day, we discovered a party of 
Indians in front, but skulking in the grass and bushes were not 
perceived by them. In these glades we were in great danger, as 
we could be seen at a great distance. In the afternoon of this day 
there fell a heavy rain, and then traveling on we saw a party of the 
enemy about two hundred yards before us, but hiding ourselves in 
the bushes we had again the good fortune not to be discovered. 
This night we got out of the glades, having in the night crossed 
the paths by which we had advanced to Sandusky. 

It was our design to leave all these paths to the right and to 
come in by the Tuscarawas. We would have made a much greater 
progress, had it not been for two of our companions who were 
lame, the one having his foot burnt, the other with a swelling in 
his knee of a rheumatic nature. 

On this day, which was the second after the retreat, one of our 
company, the person affected with the rheumatic swelling, was left 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 719 

behind some distance in a swamp. Waiting for him some time we 
saw him coming within one hundred yards, as I sat on the body of 
an old tree mending my moccasins, but taking my eye from him 1 
saw him no more. He had not observed our tracks, but had gone 
a different way We whistled on our chargers, and afterwards 
halooed for him, but in vain. Nevertheless he was fortunate in 
missing us, for he afterwards came safe into Wheeling, which is a 
post of ours on the Ohio, about 70 miles below Fort Pitt. We 
traveled on until night, and were on the waters of the Muskingum 
from the middle of this day. 

Having caught a fawn this day, we made a fire in the evening 
and had a repast, having in the meantime eat nothing but the small 
bit of pork I mentioned before. We set off at break of day. About 
nine o'clock the third day we fell in with a party of the enemy 
about 12 miles from the Tuscarawas, which is about 135 miles from 
Fort Pitt. They had come upon our tracks or had been on our 
flanks and discovered us, and then having got before, had waylaid 
us, and fired before we perceived them. At the first fire one of my 
companions fell before me and another just behind me; these two 
had guns ; there were six men in company, and four guns, two of 
these rendered useless by reason of the wet when coming through 
the swamp the first night ; we had tried to discharge them but 
could not. When the Indians fired I ran to a tree, but an Indian 
presenting himself fifteen yards before me, directed me to deliver 
myself up and I should not be hurt. My gun was in good order, 
but apprehending the enemy behind might discharge their pieces 
at me, 1 did not risk firing, which I had afterwards reason to regret 
when I found what was to be my fate, and that the Indian who 
was before me and presented his gun was one of those who had just 
before fired. Two of my companions were taken witli me in the 
same manner, the Indians assuring us we should not be hurt. But 
one in company, James Paul, who had a gun in order, made his 
escape and has since come into Wheeling. One of these Indians 
knew me, and was of the party by whom I was taken in the last 
war. He came up and spoke to me calling me by my Indian name, 
Mannuchothee, and upbraiding me for coming to war against 
them. 

I will take a moment here to relate some particulars of my 
first captivity and my life since. I was taken from New River in 
Virginia by the Miamese, a nation called by us Picts, amongst 
whom I lived six years, afterwards being sold to a Delaware and 
by him put into the hands of a trader. I was carried amongst the 
&hawanese, with whom I continued six years ; so that my whole 
time amongst these nations was twelve years, that is, from the 
eighth to the twentieth year of my age. At 'the treaty of Fort 
Pitt, in the fall preceding what is called Dunmore's War, which if 



720 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

I am right, was in the year 1773, I came in with the Shawanese 
nation to the treaty, and meeting with some of my relations at that 
place, was by them solicited to relinquish the life of a savage, 
which I did with some reluctance, this manner of life having 
become natural to me, inasmuch as I had scarcely known any other. 
I enlisted as a soldier in the continental army at the commence- 
ment of the present war, and served fifteen months. Having been 
properly discharged I have since married, have a family and am in 
communion with the church. 

To return, the party by whom we were made prisoners had taken 
some horses, and left them at the glades we had passed the day 
before. They had followed on our tracks from these glades, on 
our return to which we found the horses and rode. We were car- 
ried to Wachatomakak, a town of the Mingoes and Shawanese. I 
think it was on the third day we reached the town, which when we 
were approaching, the Indians in whose custody we were, began to 
look sour, having been kind to us before and given us a little meat 
and flour to eat, which they had found or taken from some of our 
men on their retreat. This town is small and we were told was 
about two miles distant from the main town to which they intended 
to carry us. 

The inhabitants from this town came out with clubs and toma- 
hawks, struck, beat and abused us greatly. One of my two com- 
panions they seized, and having stripped him naked, blacked him 
with coal and water. This was the sign of being burnt ; the man 
seemed to surmise it, and shed tears. He asked me the meaning 
of his being blacked; but I was forbid by the enemy in their own 
language, to tell him what was intended. In English, which they 
spoke easily, having been often at Fort Pitt, they assured him he 
was not to be hurt. I know of no reason for making him the first 
object of their cruelty unless it was that lie was the oldest. 

A warrior had been sent to the great town to acquaint them with 
our coming and prepare them for the frolic ; for on our coming to 
it, the inhabitants came out with guns, clubs and tomahawks. We 
were told that we had to run to the council house, about three hun- 
dred yards. The man that was blacked was about twenty yards 
before us in running the gauntlet. They made him their principal 
object, men, women and children beating him, and those who had 
guns tiring loads of powder on him as he ran naked, putting the 
muzzfcls of the guns to his body, shouting, hallooing and beating 
their drums in the meantime. 

The unhappy man had reached the door of the council house, 
beat and wounded in a manner shocking to the sight*, for having 
arrived before him we had it in our power to view the spectacle it 
was indeed the most horrid that can be conceived. They had cut 
him with their tomahawks, shot his body black, burnt it into holes 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 721 

with loads of powder blown into him ; a large wadding had made 
a wound in liis shoulder whence the blood gushed. 

Agreeable to the declaration of the enemy, when he first set out 
he had reason to think himself secure when he had reached the 
door of the council house. This seemed to be his hope, for coming 
up with great struggling and endeavors, he laid hold of the door 
but was pulled back and drawn away by them ; finding they intended 
no mercy, but putting him to death, he attempted several times to 
snatch or lay hold of some of their tomahawks, but being weak 
could not effect it. We saw him borne off, and they were a long 
time beating, wounding and pursuing and killing him. 

That same evening I saw the dead body of this man close by the 
council house. It was mangled cruelly, and the blood mingled 
with the powder was rendered black. The same evening I saw him 
after he had been cut to pieces, and his limbs and head about two 
hundred yards on the outside of the town put on poles. That 
evening also I saw the bodies of three others in the same black and 
mangled condition ; these I was told had been put to death the 
same day, and just before we had reached the town. Their bodies 
as they lay were black, bloody, burnt with powder. Two of these 
were Harrison * and young Crawford. f I knew the visage of Col. 
Harrison, and I saw his clothing and that of young Crawford at 
the town. They brought horses to me and asked if I knew them. 
I said they were Harrison and Crawford's ; they said they were. 

The third of these men I did not know, but believe to have been 
Col. McCleland, the third in command on the expedition. The 
next day the bodies of these men were dragged to the outside of the 
town and their carcases being given to the dogs, their limbs and 
heads were stuck upon poles. 

My surviving companion shortly after we had reached the council 
house was sent to another town, and I presume, he was burnt or 
executed in the same manner. 

*This was Col. Harrison, son-in-law to Col. Crawford, one of the first 
men in the Western country. He had been greatly active on many 
occasions in devising measures for the defence of the frontiers, and 
his character as a citizen in every way, then a young man, distin- 
guished and respectable. He had been a magistrate under the juris- 
diction of Virginia, and I believe a delegate to the Assembly of that 
State. I know no man with whose grave, sedate manners, prudent 
conduct, good sense and public spirit on all occasions I was more 
pleased. H. BRACKENBIDGE. 

f This was a son of Col. Crawford. I do not remember to have seen 
him, nor was I acquainted with his character betore the expedition, 
but have since been informed universally, that he was a young man 
greatly and deservedly esteemed as a soldier and as a citizen.

722 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

In the evening the men assembled in the council house this is a 
large building about fifty yards in length, and about twenty-five 
yards wide, and about sixteen feet in height, built of split poles 
covered with bark ; their first object was to examine me, which 
they could do in their own language, inasmuch as I could speak the 
Miami, Shawanese and Delaware languages, which I had learned 
during my early captivity in the last war ; I found I had not for- 
gotten these languages, especially the two former, as well as my 
native tongue. 

They began with interrogating me, concerning the situation of 
our country, what were our provisions ? our numbers ? the state 
of the war between us and Britain ? I informed them Cornwallis 
had been taken, which next day, when Matthew Elliot with James 
Girty * came, he affirmed to be a lie, and the Indians seemed to 
give full credit to his declaration. 

Hitherto I had been treated with some appearance of kindness, 
but now the enemy began to alter their behavior towards me. 
Girty had informed them, that when he asked me how I liked to 
live there, I had said that I intended to take the first opportunity 
to take a scalp and run off. It was, to be sure, very probable that 
if I had such intention, I would communicate it to him. Another 
man came to me and told me a story of his having lived on the 
south branch of Potomac in Virginia, and having three brothers 
there, he pretended he wanted to get away, but I suspected his de- 
sign ; nevertheless he reported that I had consented to go. In the 
meantime I was not tied, and could have escaped, but having 
nothing to put on my feet, I waited some time longer to provide 
for this. 

I was invited every night to the war dance, which they usually 
continued until almost day. I could not comply witli their desire, 
believing these things to be the service of the devil. 

The council lasted fifteen days ; fifty to one hundred warriors 
being usually in council, and sometimes more. Every warrior is 
admitted to these councils ; but only the chiefs or head warriors 
have the privilege of speaking. The head warriors are accounted 
such from the number of scalps and prisoners they have taken. 

The third day McKee was in council, and afterwards was gener- 
ally present. He spoke little, and did not ask any questions or 
speak to me at all. He lives about two miles out of town, has a 
house built of square logs with a shingle roof ; he was dressed in 

* These men, Elliot and Girty, were inhabitants of the western 
country, and since the commencement of the war, for some time pro- 
fessed an attachment to America, went oft" to the Indians. They are 
of that horrid brood called Refugees, and whom the devil has long 
since marked for his own property. 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 723 

gold laced clothes. I had seen him at the former town through 
which I passed. 

I think it was on the last day of the council, save one, that a 
speech came from Detroit, brought by a warrior who had been 
counselling with the commanding officer at that place. The speech 
had been long expected, and was in answer to one sometime before 
sent from the town to Detroit. It was in a belt of Wampum, and 
began with addressing them, "My children," and inquiring why 
they continue to take prisoners ? Provisions are scarce ; when 
prisoners are brought in we are obliged to maintain them, and still 
some of them are running away and carrying tidings of our affairs. 
When any of your people fall into the hands of the rebels, they show 
no mercy ; why then should you take prisoners ' J Take no more 
prisoners, my children, of any sort ; man, woman or child. 

Two days after, a party of every nation that was near being col- 
lected, it was determined on to take no more prisoners of any sort. 
They had held a large council, and the determination was, that if 
it were possible they could find a child of a span or three inches 
long, they would show no mercy to it. At the conclusion of the 
council it was agreed upon by all the tribes present, viz: the 
Tawaws, Chippawaws, the Wyandota, the Mingoes. the Delawares, 
the Shawanese, Munses, and a part of the Cherokees, that should 
any of the nations who were not present take any prisoners, these 
would rise against them, take away the prisoners and put them to 
death. 

In the course of these deliberations I understood what was said 
perfectly. They laid plans against our settlements of Kentucky, 
the Falls, and towards Wheeling. These it will be unnecessary for 
me to mention in this narrative, more especially as the Indians 
finding me to have escaped, and knowing that I would not fail to 
communicate these designs, will be led to alter their resolutions. 

There was one council held at which I was not present. The 
warriors had sent for me as usual, but the squaw with whom I 
lived would not suffer me to go, but hid me under a large quantity 
of skins. It may have been from an unwillingness that I should 
hear in council the determination with respect to me, that I should 
be burnt. 

About this time, twelve men were brought in from Kentucky, 
three of whom were burnt on this day; the remainder were dis- 
tributed to other towns, and all, as the Indians informed me, were 
burnt. This was after the speech came from Detroit. 

On the day after, I saw an Indian who had just come into town, 
and who said that the prisoners he was bringing to be burnt, and 
who he said was a doctor, had made his escape from him. I knew 
this must have been Dr. Knight, who went as surgeon of the ex- 
pedition. The Indian had a wound four inches long in his head, 



724 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

which he acknowledged the doctor had given him ; he was cut to 
the skull. His story was that he had untied the doctor, being 
asked by him to do so, the doctor promising that he would not go 
away ; that while he was employed in kindling the fire the doctor 
snatched up the gun had come behind and struck him ; that he 
then made a stroke at the doctor with his knife, which he laid hold 
of, and his fingers were cut almost off, the knife being drawn 
through his hand ; that he gave the doctor two stabs, one in the 
back, the other in the belly; said the doctor was a great big, tall, 
strong man. Being now adopted in an Indian family, and having 
some confidence for my safety, I took the liberty to contradict this 
and said that I knew the doctor, who was a weak, little man. The 
other warriors laughed immoderately, and did not seem to credit 
him.* At this time I was told that Col. Crawford was burnt, and 
they greatly exulted over it. 

The day after the council I have mentioned, about forty warriors, 
accompanied by George Girty, came early in the morning round 
the house where I was. The squaws gave me up, I was sitting 
before the door of the house ; they put a rope round, my neck, tied 
my arms behind my back, stripped me naked, and blacked me in 
the usual manner. George Girty, as soon as 1 was tied, d d me, 
and said that I now should get what I had deserved many years. I 
was led away to a town distant about five miles, to which a mes- 
senger had been dispatched to desire them to prepare to receive 
me. 

Arriving at this town, I was beaten with clubs and the pipe ends 
of their tomahawks, and was kept for some time tied to a tree be- 
fore a house door. In the meanwhile the inhabitants set out to 
another town about two miles distant, where I was to be burnt, 
and where I arrived about three o'clock in the afternoon. 

Here also was a council house, part of it covered and part of it 
without a roof. In the part of it where no cover was, but only 
sides built up, there stood a post about sixteen feet in height, and 
in the middle of the house around the post, there were three piles 
of wood built about three feet high and four feet from the post. 

Being brought to the post my arms were tied behind me, and the 
thong or cord with which they were bound was fastened to the 
post ; a rope also was put about my neck, and tied to the post about 
four feet above my head. During the time they were tying me, 
piles of wood were kindled and began to flame. 

Death by burning, which appeared to be now my fate, I had re- 

*It is well known that Mr. Slover mentioned these circumstances at 
his first coming into Wheeling, and before he could have known the 
relation of the doctor, for that this is an evidence of the truto of the 
doctor's account, and his own. H. B. 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 725 

solved to sustain with patience. The divine grace of God had made 
it less alarming to me; for on my way this day I had been greatly 
exercised in regard to my latter end. 1 knew myself to have been 
a regular member of the church, and to have sought repentance for 
my sins; but though I had often heard of tlie faith of assurance, 
had known nothing of it; but early this day, instantaneously by a 
change wrought upon me sudden and perceivable as lightning, 
an assurance of my peace made with God, sprung up in mind. 
The following words were the subject of my meditation" In peace 
thoa shalt see God. Fear not those who can kill the body. In 
peace shalt thou depart." I was on this occasion by a confidence 
in mind not to be resisted, fully assured of my salvation. This 
being the case I was willing, satisfied and glad to die. 

I was tied to the post, as I have already said, and the flame was 
now kindled. The day was clear, not a cloud to be seen. If there 
were clouds low in the horizon, the sides of the house prevented me 
from seeing them, but I heard no thunder, or observed any sign of 
approaching rain ; just as the fire of one pile began to blaze, the 
wind rose, from the time they began to kindle the fire and to tie me 
to the post, until the wind began to blow, was about fifteen min- 
utes. The wind blew a hurricane, and the rain followed in less 
than three minutes. The rain fell violent ; and the fire, though it 
began to blaze considerably, was instantly extinguished. The rain 
lasted about a quarter of an hour. 

When it was over the savages stood amazed, and were a long 
time silent. At last one said, we will let him alone till morning, 
and take a whole day's frolic in burning him. The sun at this 
time was about three hours high. It was agreed upon, and the rope 
about my neck was untied, and making me sit down, they began 
to dance round me. They continued dancing in this manner until 
eleven o'clock at night; in the meantime, beating, kicking and 
wounding me with their tonyihawks and clubs.* 

At last one of the warriors, the Half Moon, asked me if I was 
sleepy ? I answered, yes. The head warrior then chose out three 
warriors to take care of me. I was taken to a block house ; my 
arms were tied until the cord was hid in the flesh, they were tied 
in two places, round the wrist and above the elbows. A rope was 
fastened about my neck and tied to a beam of the house, but per- 
mitting me to lie down on a board. The three warriors were con- 
stantly harassing and troubling me, saying, " How will you like to 
eat fire to morrow you will kill no more Indians now." I was in 

*I observed marks on the man when I saw him, which was eight 
or ten clays after he came in, particulaily a wound above his right 
eyebrow, which he had received with the pipe end of a tomahawk ; 
but his back and body generally had been injured. H. B. 



726 ASSOCIATED BATTALIONS 

expectation of their going to sleep, when at length, about an hour 
before daybreak, two laid down, the third smoked a pipe, talked to 
me and asked the same painful questions. About half an hour 
after, he also laid down ; I heard him begin to snore. Instantly I 
went to work, and as my arms were perfectly dead with the cord, 
I laid myself down upon my right arm which was behind my back, 
and keeping it fast with my lingers, which had still some life and 
strength, I slipped the cord from my left arm over my elbow and my 
wrist. One of the warriors now got up and stirred the fire. I was 
apprehensive that I should be examined, and thought it was over 
with me, but my hopes revived when now he lay down again. I 
then attempted to unloose the rope about my neck ; tried to gnaw 
it, but it was in vain, as it was as thick as my thumb and as hard as 
iron, being made of a buffalo hide. I wrought with it a long time, 
gave it out, and could see no relief. At this time I saw daybreak 
and heard the cock crow. I made a second attempt, almost without 
hope, pulling the rope by putting my fingers between my neck and 
it, and to my great surprise it came easily untied. It was a noose 
with two or three knots tied over it. 

I slipped over the warriors as they lay, and having got out of the 
house, looked back to see if there was any disturbance. I then, ran 
through the town into a corn field ; in my way I saw a squaw with 
four or five children lying asleep under a tree. Going in a different 
way into the field, I untied my arm, which was greatly swollen and 
turned black. Having observed a number of horses in the glade as 
I ran through it, I went back to catch one, and on my way found a 
piece of an old rug or quilt hanging on a fence, which I took with 
me. Having caught the horse, the rope with which I had been 
tied served for a halter, I rode off. The horse was strong and swift, 
and the woods being open and the country level, about ten o'clock 
that day I crossed the Scioto river at a place, by computation, fifty 
full miles from the town. I had rod^ about twenty-five miles on 
this side of the Scioto by three o'clock in the afternoon, when the 
horse began to fail, and could no longer go on a trot. I instantly 
left him, and on foot, ran about twenty miles farther that day, 
making in the whole the distance of near one hundred miles. In 
the evening I heard hallooing behind me, and for this reason did 
not halt until about ten o'clock at night, when I sat down, was ex- 
tremely sick and vomited ; but when the moon rose, which might 
have been about two hours after, I went on and traveled until day. 

During the night I had a path, but in the morning judged it 
prudent to forsake the path and take a ridge for a distance of fifteen 
miles, in a line at right angles to my course, putting back as I went 
along, with a stick, the weeds which I had bent, lest I should be 
tracked by the enemy. I lay the next night on the waters of 
Muskingum; the nettles had been troublesome to me after my 



AND MILITIA OF THE REVOLUTION. 727 

crossing the Scioto, having nothing to defend myself but the piece 
of a rug which I had found and which while I rode I used under me 
by way of a saddle ; the briars and thorns were now painful to, and 
prevented me from traveling in the night until the moon appeared. 
In the meantime I was prevented from sleeping by the mosquitoes, 
for even in the day I was under the necessity of traveling with a 
handful of bushes to brush them from my body. 

The second night I reached Cushakim, next day came to New- 
comer's town, where I got about seven raspberries, which were the 
first thing I ate from the morning on which the Indians had taken 
me to burn me until this time, which was now about three o'clock 
the fourth day. I felt hunger very little, but was extremely weak. 
I swam Muskingum river at Oldcomer's town, the river being two 
hundred yards wide ; having reached the bank, I sat down, looked 
back and thought I had a start of the Indians if any should pursue. 
That evening I traveled about five miles; next day came to Still- 
water, a small river, in a branch of which I got two small crawfish 
to eat. Next night I lay within five miles of Wheeling, but had 
not slept a wink during this whole time, being rendered impossible 
by the mosquitoes, which it was my constant employment to brush 
away. Next day came to Wheeling, and and saw a man on the 
island in the Ohio opposite to that post, and calling to him and 
asking for particular persons who had been on the expedition, and 
telling him I was Slover, at length, with great difficulty, he was 
persuaded to come over and bring me across in his canoe. 

At the same time, though I would strike away this excuse which 
is urged for the savages, I am far from approving the Moravian 
slaughter. Doubtless the existence of that body of people in our 
neighborhood, was of disadvantage, as they were under the neces- 
sity of receiving and refusing the Sandusky savages as they came 
to war, and as they returned, and as no doubt some amongst them 
communicated intelligence of any expedition on foot against the 
enemy. I am also disposed to believe, that the greater part of the 
men put to death were warriors ; this appears from the testimony 
of one against another, from the confession of many, from their 
singing the war song when ordered out to be tomahawked, from 
the cut and painting of their hair, and from other circumstances. 
The greater part of the Moravian men who were really peaceable 
or well affected to us, having been carried off the fall before, and 
still detained at Sandusky. 

But the putting to death the women and children, who sang 
hymns at their execution, must be considered as unjustifiable, in- 
excusable homicide ; and the Colonel who commanded the party, 
and who is said perseveringly, contrary to the remonstrances of 
officers present, to have enjoined the perpetration of the act, has 
not yet been called to an account, is a disgrace to the State of 
Pennsylvania.

WILLIAMSON'S EXPEDITION. 



[The causes which led to the expedition of the Washington 
militia against the Moravian Indians on the Muskingum, were the 
frequent murderous marauds by either these or their savage allies 
whom they harbored. History has frequently repeated the story of 
Gnadenhiitten, where the innocent suffers for the guilty. It is not 
our purpose to extenuate or censure the Pioneers of Western 
Pennsylvania, who in their efforts to secure peaceful homes, found 
the necessity to exterminate the red man prowling on the frontiers. 
The list of men who were upon the expedition is far from complete, 
as there were at least a force of one hundred and sixty men under 
the lead of the brave Williamson.]
